The Best choice for free digital - HDTV -TV Antenna reception for the New York area is the EZ-HD or the HD Stacker antennas.
The New York free to air TV market is one of the best in the entire Country. There are dozens of free channels available. All of the major network channels are available (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, CW, ION) plus independent channels and dozens of sub channels to numerous to mention.
There are 3 major channels in New York broadcasting a VHF TV signal.
This is important because most antennas available today are designed for UHF signals and perform poorly for the reception of VHF signals. The major VHF channels are ABC channel 7, CW channel 11 and PBS channel 13. In addition these channels provide about a dozen sub channels all VHF signals.
Be aware that most antennas on the market today claim to be VHF capable when in fact they're not.
Just because I say it, doesn't make it true.
If you're in doubt I suggest you contact the station engineer at any of the above stations to verify the information on this page as true.

The New York TV stations reception map below is compiled from hundreds of actual customer reports using either the EZ HD or the HD Stacker antennas. If the antenna location is inside of the Green circle use the EZ HD antenna. If the antenna location is outside of the Green circle within the Blue circle use the HD Stacker antenna. TV reception from New York TV stations outside of the Blue circle is possible but is hit and miss no matter what antenna is used for reception. Both the EZ HD and the HD Stacker antennas have been physically fine tuned to receive the New York area TV stations digital TV signal frequencies.
