RAW/HOF will be in MSG and (incase you're into it) ROH will most likely be in the Manhattan Center, and DGUSA will be somewhere in NY. Obviously this could change but that is the way it seems to be playing out as of now, especially with the Mania TV spot focusing on NY more than Jersey.
I don't know where you get your information from, but most, if not all of the WWE revenue producing events will be held in Jersey. If you aren't aware, WrestleMania is basically sold to a specific area as a "package" deal. Jersey finalized the deal to bring Mania in next year. New York may play some minor part in the weekend and possibly even host the Raw or Smackdown event following Mania but my guess is Axxess, HOF, WrestleMania, and Raw will all be held in Jersey. That ensures that the hotels, restaurants, stores, workers, cab drivers, etc. in Jersey will reap the revenue benefits of bringing Mania in for the whole week. It would defeat the purpose of the weekend by having events spread throughout 2 different states. While logistically NJ and NY are very close together and easy to get to and from, Jersey got the deal done and it only makes sense that everything will take place within that state's limits. I guess time will tell but I wouldn't count on any of the major WrestleMania activities to take place in NY.
