"New York City" is a song written by John Lennon that was first released on Lennon's and Yoko Ono's 1972 album Some Time in New York City.

"New York City" was inspired by Lennon's move to New York City and by the people he met in the city.[1] He began writing the song soon after moving there in 1971, and a few weeks after his move he had completed the first verse, although the rest of the song was only a sketch.[1] An early version was used in Lennon's and Ono's film Clock, which was filmed in September 1971.[1][2] That version relied more prominently on the "que pasa" lyrics than the final version.[2] Lennon continued to expand the lyrics and make demo recordings of the song, including an acoustic version from late 1971 which was included on John Lennon Anthology.[1][2] The final version released on the album was recorded in 1972 with Elephant's Memory on the backing instruments
