    Hi It turned out to be a bit difficult to me what is called "indirect questions" or "noun clauses with a question word". I`ve had problems specially when using the question word "who". So in order to conffirm If I`ve figure it out or not I would like to know if this answer is good. It still sounds a bit weird to me:

    Who is the mayor of New York City?
    I don't know who the mayor of New York City is.

    or you could simply say:
    "I don't know."

    It may 'sound a bit weird' because "mayor" in English translates to "alcalde o "intendente" in Spanish. Your sentences with "who" sound good to me too.
