Sorry Marco - If I'd been awake and sharp enough, I'd have seen you were on LI.
I lived on "the Island" for a while - and yes you are right, getting anything chromed or finding a decent plater there is next to impossible - we sent stuff to Jersey where apparently, the inspectors are too frightened to check up on chemical discharge anymore - the ones that did, we heard, ended up in the river.....but the plating was good.
