Does anybody know when the iPhone 5 will come out on Virgin in the US? I know that Cricket already has it, but it's not available in New York.

Virgin mobile will offer the iPhone 5 in all service areas once apple sells them factory unlocked. It could be months before apple releases an unlocked version, so if you want an iPhone right now, I suggest going with a contract carrier

I think it won't be available for awhile (maybe mid-2013) since Sprint owns VM and they want to draw people into postpaid plans as much as they can before they start selling it with VM prepaid plans. Also you can't just BYOD to VM.
