Summer in the City: Live in New York is a live album, produced by Joe Jackson and Sheldon Steiger.

With semi-classical pieces on his previous three recordings, Jackson proved he had not abandoned pop altogether in June 2000, with this issue, an album drawn from an August 1999 concert.[2] It featured Jackson playing the piano and singing, backed only by Graham Maby and drummer Gary Burke, performing some of his old songs and several covers.[2]

The shows were recorded by Steve Remote and Sheldon Steiger over three days in August 1999 at Joe's Pub in Manhattan.[3]
