We strongly recommend that you leave your car in one of New York's many garages during your stay; taxis, walking and public transit will keep you out of the city's traffic jams, and you won't need to give yourself headaches trying to find parking.
A great many taxis roam the streets of New York City. They are cheap and most of the time, all you have to do is raise your arm to hail one.
