Row U isn't that bad a seat. The First Ring overhangs it, and there are a couple of rows behind it. But be sure to bring your opera glasses.
You'll probably see Wendy Whelan and Albert Evans in the Herman Schmerman Pas de Deux and I think you'll love it. In addition to Swan Lake, the rest of the program consists of Balanchine's Kammermusik No 2, which is kind of hard for a first visit to the ballet, and Mercurial Maneouvres. If you watched the NYCB broadcast on PBS last night, MM was the last thing on the show It's fun.
It's great that you'll see Swan Lake on your first visit to the ballet. I saw Swan Lake on my first visit to the ballet -- the full length version as done by the Kirov, not the one-act Balanchine version you'll be seeing. I was twice as old as you when I went. That was over 40 years ago and I've been going to the ballet ever since.
Have a great time.
