NY State law makes no distinction for airports or almost all other buildings. Typically, the only prohibited areas are the federal restrictions, the state equivalents and universities/schools. It's one of those areas where "anti-gun NY" is actually better than most supposed "gun friendly" states. There are a few weird ones but not like people would assume.
Is this in regards to concealed carry too? Such as if you can get a permit, you can carry it in more places, than you can in other states where a permit is more easily gotten?

Specifically to concealed carry. There is no open carry and there is no ownership/possession of handguns without a permit.

Yes, for instance,

Bar/alcohol establishments are not restricted.

"No Guns" signs carry no more force of law than trespassing if caught.

No duty to inform.

Banks are not restricted.

There is also the difference between New York (city) & New York (state) to factor in. NYC has been it's own weird little world for ever even within New York State.

True, dat.

Almost literally their own little world.

NEW YORK CITY does not honor New York STATE issued permits. Not for at least the last 50 years, and possibly never did.

The only permits that are valid in NYC are those issued in NYC.

IIRC, that goes back as far as 1911.

NYC Arrest of "defaced" guns?

That's true, the Sullivan Law. A notorious, explicitly racist law, from a notoriously corrupt Timothy Sullivan, in an already notoriously corrupt Tammany Hall. Passed specifically to disarm the victims of Sullivan's mob friends.
