New York City (You're a Woman) is the fourth album by singer-songwriter Al Kooper for Columbia Records, recorded and released in 1971.

Recorded with two separate groups, one in Los Angeles, California (which produced eight tracks) and the other in London, England (which produced three) and inspired by the likes of Elton John (whose "Come Down in Time" is covered), The Beatles and Neil Young, Kooper trotted out a more subdued sound than on his previous albums. Among the best-known tracks from the album is the title track, the only released portion of the presumably unfinished New York City: 6 A.M. to Midnight.
