"New York, New York" is a song from the 1944 musical On the Town and the 1949 MGM musical film of the same name. The music was written by Leonard Bernstein and the lyrics by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. The best known line of this song is, "New York, New York, a helluva town. The Bronx is up but the Battery's down." For the film version, the word "helluva" was changed to "wonderful" to appease the Production Code offices.

In the Tim Burton movie, "Sleepy Hollow", Johnny Depp's Ichabod Crane utters the song's most memorable line: "The Bronx is up and the Battery's down" to his traveling party in the final scene.
