How far along are you in college? If you are just starting out, you will want to stay where you are. In-state tuition will almost always be less expensive in your home state than as an out-of-state resident of either Florida or New York. The key is to finish what you started in as rapid a fashion as possible. Delay your personal gratification until you graduate, and go to the state that will offer you the greatest opportunity to utilize your education. With funding for post- high school education so stressed, gaining student residency in your desired state will be scrutinized closely, and you will pay the tuition of a nonresident in most instances.

Comparing NY to FL is apples to oranges. I've lived in both places too. It's like cold weather, a rat race, and good jobs vs more laid back, better quality of life, and lower pay. Have you considered somewhere in-between, like maybe the DC area, or the Research Triangle Park area? That way you could have the best of both worlds more or less when you feel like it.. until you decide..

Better quality of life in New York?

Depression is higher in Florida than it is in New York.

having lived in upstate NY for a few years, depression is a way of life up there for the majority of the year when it's dark, cold and snowy.

I would say FL. I lived in NYC and it was ok..... I live in TX now and I am so tired of it and I was born and raised here. I can't wait to move to FL.

I don't think anyone can answer which is better. It's all in what you want out of where you want to live.
There are pros and cons of each area.

According to the latest Census most of the population has moved south, many have left NY (as a result NY lost seats in the government, Florida gain seats) It is Cold, snowy, Gray. I know a lot of people that do not have Jobs.
Have you heard the expression "The Grass is always Greener"...it is totally your choice but NY both the state and the City are not a piece of cake either. Winters are long, everything is expensive and work is hard to find.

Visiting both states is very different than living in them. You might hate NY too. Might be good to just stay where you are and finish school there then move.
