Hi,
Sorry, as it sounds like you know... to go here:
https://sa.www4.irs.gov/irfof/lang/en/irfofgetstatus.jsp
And check your refund status you need social security number, filing status (jont, single, etc) and refund amount.
The other two ways to get the status of your refund are to call in to IRS ...
OR
TO go to a walk-in field office
From here: http://www.irs.gov/Refunds/Tax-Season-Refund-Frequently-Asked-Questions
IRS says the following:
"Our phone and walk-in representatives can only research the status of your refund if it has been 21 days or more since you filed electronically, more than 6 weeks since you mailed your paper return..."
Here's a list of all the Walk-in office in New York:
