NYC Colleges

My character is a senior in high school in New York (Manhattan, specifically). He goes to a private high school with a good reputation, which I'm sort of basing off of LREI High School. It appears as if he has ADHD and dyslexia, but he's not on medication and he seems to get better at controlling it as he gets older. He's become a decent student, I'd put his GPA around 3.0, and his SATs around 1100 (not counting the new writing portion). He can be considered a troublesome student, in that monsters tend to attack him, but all in all, he's a good kid. He's the school's star swimmer and is on the varsity track, cross country and basketball teams (basically, one of the ways he has learned to control his "ADHD" is to be as active as possible). He does little community service, except help out at a camp during the vacations. He's pretty much known as a good kid who attracts trouble easily and will try hard when motivated...though getting him motivated can be a challenge.

Where would he apply for college in the greater NYC area?
