Rattle and hum, the ginger man are both near the empire state building and easy to find.
Blind tiger down in the village.
Pony bar hells kitchen.
Of course a quick train ride on the L train 1 stop in to Brooklyn is in striking distance to the Brooklyn brewery.

I had a great time at the pourhouse I think it's in the village. We went there after 12 or maybe 1am and they had some crazy Sunday night 1 am happy hour with 1/2 price drinks and food. They have a huge bottled selection. Was drinking $3 raging bitch and $4 a plate wings till 3 am.

Gingerman is the best! But don't go during afterwork hours like from 4:30pm on weeknights - waaay too packed. Also, if you like Belgian beer there's a place in the village called Vol De Nuit:

Also, we have the Heartland Brewery which has an awesome pumpkin on tap right now:

They have several locations. Blind Tiger as mentioned is also cool.

This weekend is the end of craft beer week.

Rattle and Hum, may be one of the best beer bars in the city.

The Pour House on 14th Street has a great selection.

I think if you're a tourist you have to hit up McSorley's. It's an old Irish pub about 7 blocks south the Pour House. It's a wild place. Like most good bars in NYC if you hit it up during happy hour or the afternoon on the weekend, it is absolutely packed. Basically they serve 2 beers: light and dark. They keep bringing them whether you want them or not. I think it's 5 bucks for 1/2 filled pints.

Another favorite is the House Of Brews on 46th and 9th. It's a bit less touristy but they've a decent selection and good atmosphere. There are a few good beer bars within 1-2 or blocks and you could spend an entire night just on one street.

I hear Manhattan is pretty devoid of bars and restraunts.... you may not have much luck finding one.

In Brooklyn:
Barcade
Spuyten Duyvil
Radegast Hall & Beer Garden
Brooklyn Brewery if that's your thing though it's never been mine
Matt Torrey's --> They still do exclusively NY state beers here, I think

In Manhattan:
Burp Castle (East Village; awesome Belgian selection)
DBA (EV)
Jimmy's No. 43 (EV)
Pony Bar (Hell's Kitchen; also wouldn't go here for weekday happy hour unless you like being crammed in with a ton of bro-ish fratboy business douches)
Everyone is going to recc Ginger Man and Rattle N Hum but that area of Midtown is a soulless hell.
