My girlfriend is thinking about moving to America. She's not a native English speaker; what programs in NYC are available? Which ones are reputable?

My (East Asian) girlfriend is nervous about making a big move to America. She specifically wants to move to New York City. I (an American citizen) am with her now in East Asia. I'd be more than willing to move with her and try to provide her with whatever emotional and material support I can muster.
That having been said, she'd love to study English. Does anyone here have any comment on what programs in NYC are available and reputable?
I've found that NYU and CUNY have programs but that doesn't tell me if they're any good.
We'd both like to believe that if she studies English and gets close to fluency that she can work in America. If anyone has any comment on that pipe dream, too, I'd love to hear it. Burst my bubble if you want to. I can take it. (Maybe)
I should add that no one's getting married anytime soon in this relationship.
