Where can I find really good preaching in New York?

After years of inertia remaining in a church I disagree with on social (and doctrinal) issues, I'm ready to switch to a more progressive denomination. I know I have lots of options in NYC, but I'd like to get recommendations for excellent preaching/teaching. In particular, I'd like for my adolescent kids to hear sermons that are relevant to today's issues and that help them have a richer understanding of themselves, the world, and God. (Or... what I really mean is I'd like for them to get something out of the sermons.)
Tim Keller's preaching and writing is noted now and then on MeFi, and it's not a bad example of what I'm looking for in terms of thoughtfulness. Unfortunately, Redeemer Presbyterian is part of the denomination I want to leave. I don't have a new denomination in mind, and I'm open to trying most anything where women can be ordained and gay people don't require deprogramming. I guess one style caveat is I don't want to attend services that are completely contemporary in style, as I do value good music and liturgy.
Any recommendations much appreciated!
