I'm going to New York later this month and I'll be there for a week. Are there any sights of interest to paper money collectors? I tried to book a tour at the NY Fed, but they were already full for the dates I'll be there.

With regards to the NY Fed tour, check the site each day for any possible cancellations.  I was able to take a tour at the last minute by taking a cancelled spot and registering for one.

I've never stopped, but have driven past StacksBowers on W 57th.  Not sure if it's worth the visit or not, but I didn't see anyplace to easily park, which is normal for NY.   Grant's tomb is also in NY, another place I drove past but didn't stop.  Wasn't in the best area and daylight was about over.

There is an IBNS chapter in NYC. I don't know their meeting schedule but contact information is on the IBNS website.

Located at 48 Wall Street is the Museum of American Finance. I was happy to see it (entry I think was $10) but no mindblowing banknotes on display from memory. It was educational and one exhibit shows the national debt increasing rapidly in real time..... every single second!

plus, if you have actually never set foot on Wall Street - you should!
The statue of George Washington is where Cisco's sub-treasury was.  To be a major bank you needed to be close enough to that spot to wheel a cart full of gold to your own vault.  The presence of the stock exchange was only a secondary consideration.
