NICE! When are you going?
I grew up there. Don't miss Rockefeller Center, Macy's at Herald Square, Central Park, Statue of Liberty (if you can't get tickets to the statue itself at least take the ferry across to Staten island and it will pass right by the Statue), China Town and Little Italy.
The 911 memorial is another must see place. The Oculus is nearby to the Memorial.
In Brooklyn, take a walk along the promenade. If you do church a MUST go to is the Brooklyn Tabernacle (ever hear of the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir?) and in Manhattan is the Times Square Church. The music at either of these places is enough to make you want to sing and shout and dance!
Also, from a historical perspective visit Wall Street and the Trinity Church on Wall Street for a taste of what early America was like in Colonial times. Make sure to visit the graveyard there and be amazed at some of the most famous people there.
Architecturally speaking St. Patrick's is amazing!
Another great museum is The Cloisters Museum. The area around the buildings contains reconstructed early medieval gardens. The Cloisters Museum today is part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, so your ticket to the Met will get you into the Cloisters, among the other NYC museums.
You'll also see plenty of gargoyles around Manhattan.
Be sure to ride the subway. It's one of my family's favorite things to do when there. Try to find one of the elevated train lines.
For places to stay, visit https://Booking.com . There are several apartments you can rent while you are there as well as hotels.
The Midtown Convention Center is nice to stay at.. The Gallivant at Times Square is nice also.
Hope this helps. Have fun. Day safe :-)

Always check airbnb and booking. I stayed at Jazz On Columbus Circle, which is two blocks from Central Park, central hostel, good price and everything around.
