Depends on your experience, but as a Chartered Accountant/ foreign CPA, you can probably find (or at least be considered for) a job doing accounting in the industry or service sector. If you want to work as a CPA in the US, you can contact the state CPA association about taking the US CPA exams to get your US CPA qualification.

You'll probably want to emphasize your international experience and shoot for companies that have international offices and subsidiaries.
Cheers,
Bev

If you are still in this early stage of job exploration, is it a good idea to move within a month? You have enough funds available to survive for > 6 months in New York without a job?

You can start to get an idea by looking at temporary housing options. Columbia University has a good list here. That'll be helpful to give you an idea of the first month, especially.

Have you prepared a budget? That'd be a good idea. Include housing, transportation ($2.75 per ride on the New York City subway), food, insurance and medical care, clothes (for winter and job interviews, as examples), mobile phone (look here for SIM card providers -- choose providers on the AT&T or T-Mobile networks -- and bring an unlocked GSM mobile phone that at least includes support for 850 and 1900 MHz bands), fees (state ID card, green card), etc.
