pets warehouse in copiague often has some decent plants. anubias and java fern are often in the tanks under the african cichlids. They have a few other tanks filled with plants as well. Also in Suffolk is BTJs Jungle (few miles east of caribean blue on Sunrise Hwy also). They have some plants; but not too great of a selection if I recall.
the only other "local" place I'd try is the other pets warehouse location in carle place/westbury/glen cove. Not sure what town they actually refer to it as; but it is on glen cove road a bit north of old country road in a shopping center that can be hard to spot. I think there is a tj max or maybe a marshalls or something like that in there with them.
Other than that, I've had nothing but fantastic results purchasing from other members on this forum. I've actually met a few local long islanders from here and bought from them with great results and have also had plenty of plants shipped by other users also with great results.
Curator of an ever growing fishroom that currently houses 30 different tanks. Most full of at least water....some even have fish!
