I know I can do a netstat -an and see all the listening and established ports.  How do I know though what port I can use for a new web application setup is available for me to use?

Well-known ports: 0–1023  
Registered ports: 1024–49151
Dynamic, private or ephemeral ports: 49152–65535

But there are many ports not commonly registered in 1024-49151 range.
So you can select a non conflicting port. For ports assigned refer:
