You probably will not qualify if you leave a job voluntarily, but check with the office in your state.  Each state is different.

for ny, unemployment is only available for those who have been released from their employers involuntarily.  any type of voluntary leave is not eligible for unemployment.

In Michigan you receive unemployment regardless of the situation. You must have worked for 12 consecutive months though.

I have been working in nyc, for nyc for seven months. I will be leaving in August, therefore I will complete 8.5 months of employment and I will be moving to michigan.
I was told by several people that I can get unemployment for relocation. Has anyone ever heard of this.??

Yes, for relocation you can. The most you will receive is $362 per week for a total of 6 months. Let me know if you need any more info. I live in Michigan.
