I note that when I was young (in the 1950s), New York was always the state, and the city was New York City. It changed over the years. Now New York is the city (in ordinary conversation), and the state is New York State. Sometimes a part of the state is designated, such as upstate New York.

In the bay area of California, San Francisco is referred to as "the city." When you say you are going to "the City", people know. The population of San Jose has surpassed the City, but that makes no difference. I like that Esperanto has given New York City it's own unique name. San Francisco should be "la Urbo".

Could "Novjorko" also refer to the state? In which case, would "Novjorkurbo" or something similar be the more precise term for the city, if you needed to clear up any confusion?

Novjorkio estas la ŝtato. Novjorko estas la urbo.

Ĉu vi scias, do, kiel nomiĝas homo kiu loĝas en (aŭ venas de) novjorkio? Ne tre gravas, sed mi scivolas :)

[la urbo] novjorko -> novjorkano, certe, sed

[la ŝtato] novjorkio -> ...novjorko? (laŭ ekzemplo de italio -> italo) certe ne?!

Jes, tiel estus plej logike laŭ mi. Simile al:
Aŭstrali/o ⇒ aŭstrali/an/o
Indonezi/o ⇒ indonezi/an/o

Since the other u.s. states don't consistently end in -io (kiel faras la iame -ujaj landoj) maybe it's just novjorkianoj

La problemo estas la majuskligo, mi opinias.
Novjorko = New York (urbo)
novjorko = ano de Novjorkio (ŝtato)
