This is not the place to ask, try posting in new york forum or even general scanning forum.

With that said, NYC is on UHF, so many scanners can listen. I would look into a BCD436HP or BCD996P, although there are cheaper models you can get that would work.

The frequencies are in the NYC section of the RadioReference database. However, even the repeater frequencies listed are low power and you would have to be near by to hear it. You would have to be even closer for the simplex frequencies.

Listen to the DOC Transportation talkgroup (oc0) on the UHF DoITT system. Some activity there. Of course, that is also reliant on if your scanner is Trunking capable or not.

I can pick them up in Jersey. It's scratchy but listenable.
