The only time that is prohibited is where posted, in those instances it's 39:4-115(b) which you are thinking of:

39:4-115.  Making right or left turn
    The driver of a vehicle or the motorman of a streetcar a. intending to turn  to the right or left at an intersection where traffic is controlled by traffic  control signals or by a traffic or police officer, shall proceed to make either  turn with proper care to avoid accidents and, except as provided in b. below,  only upon the  "Go"  signal unless otherwise directed by a traffic or police  officer, an official sign or special signal;  or b. intending to turn right at  an intersection where traffic is controlled by a traffic control signal shall,  unless an official sign of the State, municipality, or county authority having  jurisdiction over the intersection prohibits the same, proceed to make the turn  upon a  "Stop"  or  "Caution" signal with proper care to avoid accidents after  coming to a full stop, observing traffic in all directions and yielding to all  pedestrians and other traffic traveling in a direction in which the turn will  be made. Both the approach for and the turn shall be made as close as  practicable to the right-hand curb or edge of the roadway, unless such  intersection is otherwise posted.

     Amended by L.1976, c. 46, s. 1.

Question...... I live in New Jersey and know that we are allowed to turn on red as long as we can do so safely after coming to complete stop, unless there is a sign posted "No turn on red". Well I have never been to Staten Island before and was there with some friends. I turned on red and my friend in the passenger seat yelled at me for turning on red. I said there was no sign stating "No turn on red". Come to find out in New York your not allowed to turn on red unless there's a sign stating that you can. Do you think being a NJ driver they would have some leniency on out of state drivers if we are stopped while driving in NY?

Am I missing something here?  'No Turn On Red' is 39:4-81   
39:4-115a is, for example, making a left turn at an intersection and failing to yield the right of way.

4-81 is failure to observe traffic control devices which most officers write for running red lights.  It does apply but 115b is more specific for "no turn on red".  Yes it seems that 115a does apply to making a left at an intersection and causing an accident but you could also right careless driving for that.
