I was born in New York but haven't lived there since. Will I be able to get subsidise tuition rates for universities in New York?
I really don't understand this in-state, out-state fees structure.

It's unlikely - do you currently live in the US or are you international? My understanding of the system is that you qualify for in-state tuition if you fufil one of the following conditions:
1. You live in the state of the university to which you are applying
2. You do not live in-state but have family members who live there for a given number of days per year
3. You do not live in-state but live within one or two states of a specific university who allows people from neighboring states to pay the same tuition (e.g. some D.C. uni let students from Maryland pay in-state prices)
4. You are granted a scholarship which allows you to pay in-state rates.
I'm no expert, but I do know a relatively decent amount about the US system. Obviously, the conditions for in-state rates will slightly depend on the university; however, those are the general conditions.
