All the right links have been provided by the agents below. Choosing a school is a very personal decision, as what makes a school the right one for one person is not necessarily the same criteria as for someone else. Think about what is important to you. Is it class size, test scores, extent of extra-curricular activities, condition and extent of facilities? These are all points to consider.

unfortunately, the public school system in NYC, especially in Manhattan is one of if not the worst in the country! If leaving near a good public school is a big priority and you can't be too far from the city, the best place I know of is in the South-West of Brooklyn: around Bayridge. I've seen a kid transferring from an elementary school there to one with a bit of reputation in the city and he was so far ahead it was ridiculous. I think it's also good for a kid to grow up outside big cities, a place with houses, people mowing their lawn, and kids who act like kids. Then there are very good private schools in manhattan for about $30K/year...
