Quoting Fiscal (Reply 2): I would think it will be LHR for less connections. It will be a matter of trying to work out which hub has the best connection time and facilities.
If you want to visit NYC first, then you may well be best off on a multi-stop ticket, or by buying two separate return tickets. I'm not sure of your location in the UK, but I tend to find that the cheapest LON-NYC fares are indirect flights via a US hub, whilst indirect one stop flights via a hub like AMS or CDG are normally the same price from the regional UK airports.
Personally I'd avoid LHR and take the regional option if it's closer to home - AF/KL/DL will cover you pretty well wherever you want to route.
