I did not work when I live in NYC for 8 month, but I have to pay NYC tax?

Actually I did work in NYC for a month, then moved to
Westchester County, NY and the rest of my income were from
there. In my W2 in Box# 18, it showed a lower wage of about
$5K from the money I got when I was in NYC. In Box 16 in
W2, it had my total income for the state for the whole year.

I think I was reading somewhere that said I had to use my
Taxable income for the entire NYS amount to calculate the
NYC tax. Is it true? If it is, then what is that Box#18
doing in W2? If I can make the law, I would let the NYC
taxable income be that mount in Box #18. I know it would be
complicated for the government, but I should only have to
pay NYC taxes for the income I got when I lived in NYC.
Please give me some advice. Thanks.

As a full year NYS resident and a part-year NYC resident you
would file IT-201 full year resident return and IT-360.1 to
compute the NYC tax on your NYC source income.

Part year NYC residents do their part year allocations and
part year tax calculations on form IT360.1 (I seem to do a
bunch of them each year)
