Why does the New York feel so underwhelming for me?

I love the Wyoming and am able to deal tons of damage with it, but somehow the guns of the New York feel like peashooter for me. Keep in mind, i'm mainly fighting other BBs like New York, New Mexico and Kongo. Doesn't matter if i use HE or AP. I get my [edited]kicked by other New Yorks and i only deal minimal damage. Yes, i am aiming at the waterline, yes i try to hit the citadel or the magazine below the guns. It just doesn't work for me. In my last match i got a Citadel penetration by accident.

I'm not even able to set them on fire despite the 30% chance with HE shells, which i use at longer ranges.

 

Could use some tips on how to play this ship or maybe even a video or replay.

Angle this bad boy,  you got a long reload time and tight turning circle.

And don't ships which don't present a flat spot for you to hit, unless there is no other option.

 

I really like this ship, can't wait for the South Dakota.

i've had some pretty good games in the NY (and later in the New Mexico).

My standard ammo use is AP, i feel the HE simply cant keep up dmg wise, but that's just me.

I feel that the battleships simply dont have the rate of fire to make good use of the HE Shells, and therefore i tend to mainly use AP Shells.

The NY and NM can both turn pretty tight, and fast, use that to your advantage, cause once you get in the Colorado, then it changes (stock hull has a ~27 sec rudder shift time(~19 sec with the first hull upgrade)), but the Colorado do get some upgradet gun (406 mm, same reload speed as the 2 previous ships, and better range).

South Dakota will at some point probably be a tier 8 US BB, with the North Carolina. South Dakotas are basically baby Iowa's, the Iowa's design is just a scaled up South Dakota.
