No permit is required for the purchase of a rifle or shotgun in the State of New York, except in New York City. No person, firm or corporation engaged in the retail business of selling rifles, shotguns or handguns, shall sell, deliver or transfer any such gun to another person unless the transferee is provided with a gun locking device and a label on safe storage.

So, you can own a rifle in NYC, but the only difference is that you need a permit.
