NY AGI is federal AGI with some state-specific adjustments. On the subtraction side, taxable refunds of state income tax and social security are excluded from NY AGI. On the addition side, tax-exempt interest from bonds issued by non-NY entities is taxable on the NY side.

Don't forget the other big subtractions -- interest on US government debt, NYS and local government pensions (not likely to be relevant to OP).
