Advice for finding accountant (in NYC and elsewhere)

I'm looking for an accountant in NYC.  I've switched accountants every year that I've lived here due to issues ranging from mistakes to missed deadlines.  I've found Avvo (supplemented with Yelp) as a helpful place for researching attorneys.  I haven't found anything similar to Avvo for accountants.  Does anyone have and advice or recommendations for finding an accountant in NYC?
Too many founders wing it when it comes to financials; they have no idea how to explain them to investors. In this course, we’ll teach you how to build a basic financial model; read financial statements; and understand cash flow, balance sheets, and income statements.

The closest thing to 'Avvo for accountants' that I could find is TeaSpiller.com run by Intuit, but it doesn't return the results I expect.  I really want someone local but the site would recommend accountants from all over the US who supposedly "Specialize in [taxes for] New York and all other states."

He never got it off the ground, but an accountant friend of mine really wanted to start an Avvo for Accountants. It doesn't look like there's anything like this out there with any substantial traction. Sounds like opportunity for some entrepreneurial accountant out there (if such a person exists ;0).
