Extinct Parties
Centralists:
Being the supporters of a tighter Continental Government, they weren't exactly popular in New York especially given Governor Clinton was a vocal critic of the failed Philadelphia Constitution. However once the Congress was written off, Hamilton remolded them in his image.
Decentralists: While they always held the leadership of the State in the Revolution, the wars that broke out after their "successful" defense against the Philadelphia Constitution did much to erode their goodwill, and they floundered.
Whig Party: The Whigs dominated New York during the Second Republic, not just through graft and greed, not just through The Old Man's iron fist, and not just through oppositional incompetence, but through all three simultaneously building off of each other. However even the mighty can fall, and the party civil war following Hamilton's death split the Party and ironically did more for the Republic's democracy than either Clinton.
Democracy Party: It may be said that the Democracy Party died just before it could seize on the Whig Party Civil War to finally claw back to the top spot following the Hamilton reign. But the answer is after DeWitt Clinton died, no one really came to be the leader of the party, and it seemed all that held it together was a deep loathing of the Governor, and once he was gone, entropy kicked in.
Equal Rights Party: Despite only existing for 7 years, the Equal Rights Party is arguably one of the most important parties in New York history, their alliance with Van Buren’s Whig faction enabled the Knickerbocker to succeed against his one-time friend Marcy in 1841.
Radical Party: The Radical Party certainly lived up to its name, and somehow managed to even get one of their own into the Governor’s Mansion, but even at the height of its power they could not keep its workerist and agrarian wings united in purpose.
