I put together a list of job boards, if that's helpful: https://gist.github.com/afeld/5201086
They might be more oriented to full-time than freelance, though.

Thanks for all the suggestions, I've already signed up to rubynow.com
I'm sure we'll bump into each other at a tech meet up.
Here's a plan ...
0) Email this list (and others like it) - DONE!
1) sign up to jobs boards (good intel on the market, good for negotiating)
2) turn up to events and talk to the 50% that aren't paying attention to the topic (they are hiring)
3) talk to the other 50% and find out about the companies they work for (probably hiring too)
5) walk around union square with a copy of 'Programming Rails 1.9'
You probably won't make it much beyond step 3 :)
If you're into the neuroscience of resume writing, check out this fun post I just put together ...
I recently just took over jobs.rubynow.com
so feel free to sign up for the ruby jobs postings there. It's the oldest Rails jobs board and I'm working to help fix it up. All comments welcome :)
Enjoy New York!

Thank you all for such a positive response.
I'll get back to you all off-list.
I'm looking forward to the move!
Linkedin profile is just as important as your resume and you can sign up seeking work and browse the largest group of ft and consulting opps off Linkedin as MOST firms don't post on the above sites nearly as much as Linkedin.
There are a bunch of other sites similar to WorkMarket (whitetruffle.com
will also hook fullstack devs up with startups)...and the original "bid for work" sites are guru.com
