You guys got it all WRONG. Here's my proposal.
Leave NYC head west (go west young man).
Stop in Bridgewater, NJ and visit Chimney Rock park where you can experience 45 feet of poison ivy choked rotting sandstone covered in an eighth of an inch of stone dust from the neighboring stone quarry. THere are some hard routes there.
Then, drive further west to Pennsylvania and visit Ralph Stover State Park. The poison ivy is just as bad, the quality of rock is slightly better, there is no layer of stone dust, and the routes are longer.
Had enough yet? No, okay, head for Niagra Falls and cross over into Ontario and climb at Rattlesnake Point (never climbed there).
Then drive over to Montreal and do your thing there (rumor has it that St Catherine Street has some climbing, oui oui)
From there, start working back south but don't stop and climb anything in the daks, instead, head to near Utica and hit up Little Falls.
Now return to NY and boulder in Central Park for a good choss tour circuit.
