This one is just west of Durango, CO right now...(although technically I am no longer a NYC denizen).
Consider posting to Gunks.com - can't hurt. Or think about heading to the Brooklyn Boulders gym and see if you can meet some people there. Surely someone will at least hold your rope on a few climbs...http://www.brooklynboulders.com/
Thanks for the tips, I'll try my luck wandering around the central park boulders I guess. I didn't have much luck last saturday but I'm not the most outgoing and gregarious guy among strangers in the city.
If anyone here is in NYC and wants to meet up though I'd love to have a spotter or a partner for the gunks on Sunday. Or beer during the week!
