If you’re moving here from elsewhere, or visiting for the first time, here’s something you need to know that no one else will tell you: New Yorkers (and indeed, citizens of the tristate area as a whole) have an entirely different relationship to prepositions than anyone else in the country.
For instance, one:
1) Stands on line, not stands in line, at the movie theater, etc. Yes, here in New York, there is an invisible line and woe betide those who fail to stand upon it. In no way are you forming a line with your bodies. You have neither that much power nor that close a relationship with your fellow man.
2) Calls out sick, never calls in sick, with the sniffles. It’s less important, after all, where your call goes than where you, glorious you, happen to be at the moment. Which is out. If you see what I mean.
I hope this helps.
