    It depends on the borough.  It has to do with the fact that the New York City, in its present form, only dates back to 1899.

    The licence will list Brooklyn, Bronx, and Staten Island for addresses in those boroughs.  It will list New York, NY for addresses in Manhattan.  

    In Queens, it's a little more complicated.  When the Queens was incorporated into New York City, there was already number of towns in Queens County.  Among them were Long Island City, Flushing, Ridgewood, Douglaston.  You can still see the ghosts of those towns in the way Queens' street grid suddenly changes in some neighborhoods.  A licence with the Queens address will list the neighborhood, i.e.  Astoria, NY; Jamaica, NY;  Forest Hills, NY; Rego Park, NY;  Elmhurst, NY etc.

    It shows your address from which the borough is readily identified.
