Slightly higher for Cuomo, and Carl Paladino, says Sam Roberts:

According to the preliminary returns in the race for governor on election night, Andrew M. Cuomo, the Democrat, had 901,640 votes in the city. His official total, including paper ballots, was 1,097,792, or 196,152 more votes. The citywide count for his Republican opponent, Carl P. Paladino, increased to 212,423 from 191,652 on Nov. 2 in the official recount.

A final count by the NYC Board of elections found 195,000 more votes than were acknowledged on Election Night. Roberts notes "the additional votes did not change the outcome in any race."
