There is an Econ PhD forum on this site. If you post in there, you will get responses. My very uneducated guess is that Duke and NYU are going to be tough for you to get into, the other ones might be doable. I would add a few more schools too. Boston University comes to mind.

 

YaSvo - could you weigh up Duke vs NYU for MA Econ?

Try Barcelona GSE MSc Economics and UCL MSc Economics. As for the ones mentioned by you NYU looks slightly hard to get into but since you already have a Masters it might compensate for the low GRE quant score. Either way all the options mentioned by you look realistic in terms of probable offers. Good Luck.

Is NYU seen as the premier Econ masters out of the options in the US? Hardest to get into or the best course, for teaching and content, or just well positioned for future financiers?

Well, Columbia starts its MA Economics course this year which will be good competition for NYU's MA Economics program. For one year MA courses these two look the hardest to get into however, the course structure, content and emphasis is slightly different for both courses.
