"...since everyone knows that NY is not USA"

To say that New York is not the USA is Momus at work "authenticating" the rest of the US for us. You could also say that, pick any state, ex. Kansas is not really the USA. Kansas is superflat, proudly displays the World's largest prairie dog; the tallest thing in Kansas is viagra spokesman and Kansas native Bob Dole laying on his back! It is very similar to how you stated that Hakodate was so un-"Japanese" (almost "American") because it had too many cars and did not fit your preconceived notions of how "authentic" Japan should be.

You are setting up the other 49 US states as a reversely monstrous Vatican to your Roman, oh but they have such a wonderful Circus Maximus, New York. It simply comes down to NY not fitting the current picture of the "Christian soldier" USA that you wish to paint at the moment.
