The only moth on this 37° night.

Moved from ID Request. Thanks Chris. I should've known. I remember identifying a bunch of these in March in ID Request. I'm not sure how I forgot but I think it may have something to do with the late night posting.

Might it be the half-wing, Phigalia titea?

This was the most common moth at lights when I was in New York last month, but otherwise I am not to familiar with east coast moths.
