Just to clarify the comment on NY state being unfriendly on CC. The closer you get to the liberal sh!t hole on the SE end of the state, the harder it is to get a CCW. On the western end, it is a lot easier to obtain one. NYS Pistol Permits are not recognized in NYC, but the state recognizes theirs.
In the rest of the state, your permit is for life, and the only restrictions on where you can carry are:
Banks, courthouses, state and federal buildings, and schools. If you carry while in your vehicle, the weapon must be on your person, not your glove box or console if it is loaded. Unloaded in a case is fine, but you must have a permit to buy or own a pistol here. Also, open carry is not allowed by law. LEOs tend to "turn the other cheek" When you are out in the sticks or at a range. In the city, npt so much.
Yes, NY's gun laws suck, but those who can obtain a CCW can carry almost anywhere. This even includes places where alcohol is served. Anyone want to take a guess as to why the wife and I drink at home?
