I do believe, however, that he may be incorrect in saying that: "There is
no published index for births occurring after 1910 in New York City."

There most certainly is a birth index for New York City after 1910.
The New York Public Library has a copy and I have done look ups for a
number of people in this index. It is on fiche by year and by borough.

The challenge is it is only a listing of the baby's name and the date
of birth along with the certificate number. There's no information on
the parents, address or anything else. So if you are searching a
common name it is a very difficult search. However after giving people
the details >from this index I have heard a number of people have been
successful in getting the certificates >from the Heath Department.
