Fairly straight forward with the proper research (included).

Cheers!

"Flying a drone for recreational or non-recreational use between 15 and 30 miles from Washington, D.C. is allowed under these operating conditions:

  • Aircraft must weigh less than 55 lbs. (including any attachments such as a camera)
  • Aircraft must be registered and marked
  • Fly below 400 ft.
  • Fly within visual line-of-sight
  • Fly in clear weather conditions
  • Never fly near other aircraft"

Please, be advised that this software does not take into account local laws.

For example, the software would tell you that it is OK to fly practically anywhere in NYC. However, there are only 5 model airfields where you can fly drone legally. In any other place police would try to track you down and penalize.

Another example: the software would tell you that it is OK to fly in any New York state parks. In reality you have to get a written permission for particular place, date, and time before you can fly.

So, CHECK YOUR LOCAL LAWS!

PS: you still can not fly in green laced areas, unless you get a permit. I suspect (the software and map legend does not explain) that the Red-laced areas and red-colored areas are off limits.

The GIS map displays FAA (federal) airspace as it relates to uas.  Typically, NYC, or any other state or municipality, does not control the airspace.  They regulate where you can take-off and land. 

But you are correct that it may be not be legal to operated in areas that this map shows no restrictions.

This site has a dynamic list of areas by state.
