Smile High-paying temp jobs to combine w creative pursuits?

i live in a town the opposite of nyc. Palm Coast fl. Extremely quiet, cheap rents of overbuilt foreclosures. Though i love the quiet, i am bored! i love to meet intellectuals and discuss politics and economics, etc. I have a cousin in East Flatbush who says i can stay with her for cheap. i have a degree in IT, BUT only a couple years experience. Still i hope to find work in nyc while enjoying exploring all the tourist favorites and eateries until I find a good agency for contract jobs, and go on to make great $$$ (hopefully).
with this money i hope to buy a home in a quiet suburb, and enjoy the city occasionally. Any suggestions on the best way to find such jobs? I would prefer temp high-paying jobs as i want to take time off to explore creative outlets, like writing or documentary filmmaking. This may be a big dream, and I may end up clinging to the first good job i get, too afraid to leave and try a freelance career.
I should mention i am 50, female and a minority. I easily talk to people of all colors and ages once i get to know them, but i am SHY in the beginning. i have bought a couple books on small talk and plan to follow them to meet people.
What is the best way for me to get the kind of high-pay and flexibility i want. if necessary, i will live without the flexibility, and go for a perm job.
