I can't speak to NY, but in NJ it cost me about $300 total to become a 
LLC.  This was a standard online package from HubCo.  From what I 
understand this gives me enough seperation between my personal finances 
and business finances.  There is very little ongoing paperwork compared to 
an S-Corp.  My accountant charges about $400 for combined personal and 
business tax filing.  The state charges $50/year for my business license.
