NYC has birth records going back to 1853 with some from 1847-48 but even then, those older ones prior to the 1890's are sketchy at best. The laws were not strictly enforced to register births. I think you would have an easier time with his marriage certificate, that should list his parents names on it. Below is a .jpg of what the Municiapl Archives has on hand.
