Like, obviously it is affected by wind direction and strength, but also, just what is the range on something like that?
and, what if it was DC? or say LA?

It would really depend on the wind patterns, but most of Canada would likely be fine, with either NYC or DC.
LA could be a problem, again depending on the wind patterns. Fallout can easily travel 2-3000 miles, though at longer distances the density is going to be reduced. But since Canada's major cities are mostly just over our northern border, they're potentially in the path of a nuke plume. But the risk even there is minor, as wind patterns, usually don't cross the border when starting in LA.
Now, Seattle, Chicago, or Cleveland? You're in trouble if it's of any significant size.2
