giannathomas:  have you contacted the parish you attended when you lived in NYC?

Or asked your your local parish to refer you to someone in NYC?

I think you may have difficulty finding a parish to do it in NYC if you just go in cold, but as the PP said, your odds are a lot better if your existing parish has connections and can refer you, or if you have previously attended one there. However even if one parish won’t do it, they might be able to refer you to one who will. I would make it a priority to find one as soon as possible, though, since popular churches will book up very quickly due to the large population there. You may also have to visit and/or take pre-Cana classes with the priest there beforehand, so make sure you budget both time and travel money for that possibility.
