-County or city clerk
-Attorney at time of closing
-Bank, especially if you have a pending mortgage
Non-official offers would seem fishy if you were requested. ACRIS is the system used in New York City and is free to use.
There is a scam going on in Central Ohio right now where there are companies offering to provide you with a certified copy of your deed for $150 (or more). This is crazy, and the other responders are correct - you can obtain from your lender, the court house or attorney/title company that handled your closing.

If you have a mortgage the bank will have a copy of the deed. Also, depending upon where you live you will be able to go to the county clerks office, or if you are in Manhattan, or one of the surrounding boroughs there may be a copy on ACRIS at http://a836-acris.nyc.gov/Scripts/Coverpage.dll/index.
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
