Question First Bike in 20+ years

Big time newbie here. I'm a little intimidated about buying a bike, because I don't want to get the wrong size. I'm 6'3 and not sure what to look for in terms of sizing. I'd ideally like to buy one on Craigslist for about $100 that can be used for exercise in New York City. I'd appreciate any tips to point me in the right direction.
