Hi Matt, welcome. NYC is very large, but if you're nearer the Sound there are sailing schools on both shores. Dinghies are great, thrilling, elemental. They will teach you everything about balance and trim. Mistakes are quickly punished. But don't fear singlehanding a keelboat. They are more forgiving (except with depth). Probably most of us have solo sailed keelboats, one around twenty feet will be thrilling too, not too much to handle.
