    Despite environmental concerns and a flagging economy, car sales in the New York area have begun to bounce back. Combined sales in the city, Long Island, and Westchester and Rockland counties were up nearly 10% as of October this year compared with the same period last year, according to AutoCount data provided by the Greater New York Automobile Dealers Association. “
