The Pro to the use of a NY spring is that it makes the entire trigger pull heavier and thus harder to fire unintentionally.
The Con to the use of a NY spring is that it makes the entire trigger pull heavier and thus harder to use well.
It also increases pressure on the trigger bar/connector interface which appears to increase the possibility of having the two parts gall together and when that happens the gun can be near impossible to fire.
Some folks like to say it makes the trigger reset 'more positive' but in reality it only makes it harder/heavier, which makes it harder to use well.
No, I'm not a fan of the NY springs and I do my best to not let my friends use them. Friends don't let friends use NY springs!
