YANML, YANMA(ccountant). I moved from Arizona to NYC in mid-November (of 2010). Where do I need to pay taxes?

I'm honestly not sure what other information you need, so please ask, and I'll answer promptly.
I worked as an exempt, full time (W-2) employee in Arizona. I moved out to NYC for a similar job at a different company. I started working for the new company immediately.
I live in NYC full time (and have done since November), but I had an apartment in Arizona until about a month ago, due to a lease I had on the apartment.
Questions are: 1) in which states do I need to pay taxes? (I assume both?) 2) Do I also need to pay NYC tax? 3) Do I pay NY taxes only on income earned in NY? What about for AZ?
If this is complex enough that I really need an accountant, I will hire one, but I've always done my own taxes in the past, and would prefer to continue doing so.
