It is just at the limit. In climatology, unless you have big physical obstacles (as the Alps), it is difficult to determine a clear limit.

Depends on where you are in the city, the Metropolitan area is over 30,000 km.

The area is as big as an entire Belgium.

I find that the winters have New York are not rather cold to make a continental climate, New York is more in the humid subtropical climate ?

NYC proper is subtropical according to Koppen ( Cfa ), however, many indoor locations have been found to experience a mild desert climate ( BWn ), and isolated spots on the inside of freezers and ice cream stands experience an ice cap climate regime( EF ).

NYC has (sub)tropical summers but winters are still cold enough to be qualified for continental climate. I would say in between those who climates. Truly subtropical climates are southeast with milder winters....
