Nicholas Confessore and Michael Barbaro, The New York Times:

Lawmakers voted late Friday to legalize same-sex marriage, making New York the largest state where gay and lesbian couples will be able to wed and giving the national gay-rights movement new momentum from the state where it was born.

New York now joins Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont to permit same-sex marriage. It is also legal in the District of Columbia.

Update (The New York Times):

Mr. Cuomo signed the measure late Friday, and the law will go into effect in 30 days, meaning that same-sex couples could begin marrying in New York by midsummer. “I am very proud of New York and the statement we made to the nation today,” Mr. Cuomo said.
