New York starts at New York City...specifically mid-town Manhattan, however, it expands from there. To Brooklyn. To Queens. To Long Island. To the Hamptons. Back around, up the Hudson and upstate. Syracuse. Rochester. Buffalo. The Finger Lakes. Fortunately most of the sites are connected via the New York thru-way making it easy to get across a state that is much larger than it looks.
