I sure hope you get a set of some puncture-proof tyre, such as a Specialized Armadillo, Nimbus, or something like a Panaracer Pasela. Riding around NYC, you really need something heavy-duty. Chances are, the tyres that come with that model just aren't designed for garbage-strewn environments like you'd find in NYC. Oh, BTW, riding in the rain-that increases your chance for punctures by a factor of about 10.
