In my last puzzle, I mentioned the commonly believed scrund that New York City consists only of Manhattan. Let's call this "Scrund 1".

There is another scrund (which I will call "Scrund 2") that is related to this one. Some people believe both scrunds and I find that quite ironic.

What is Scrund 2?

Is scrund 2 related to New York City? to New York State? to another city in the US?

Is scrund 2 related to New York City? Partially to New York State? Yes to another city in the US? Partially, but don't get too caught up in this

Is the other borough Queens? Yes Is it that Brooklyn and Queens aren't part of Long Island?Yes

**********************SPOILER****************
Scrund 2 is that many people believe that Long Island consists of only Nassau and Suffolk counties in New York, when in reality it also includes Brooklyn and Queens.

Some people believe both scrunds, but they're really inconsistent with each other. The only reason that Brooklyn and Queens are often not thought of as part of Long Island is that they're part of New York City. (This seems like a silly reason to me, but I digress.) That's inconsistent with the first scrund that states that NYC=Manhattan. That's where the irony comes in.
