A resident of New York City, especially Manhattan. Contrary to upstate belief, this term does not mean someone who lives simply in New York State. And if it is used in that context, it's only in the speech of some politician or something.
Someone from upstate is not a New Yorker in the traditional sense. New York State doesn't really exist, it might as well be Pennsylvania.
