This has been a topic that has been under FOM's breathe, but if F1 goes to NY, it will be in the heart of NYC. There is a very strong dream to have a race threw the streets of the Big Apple. This sadly was probably one reason why Monticello didn't land the race. Also, they wanted a purpose built facility I believe.
