The New York Eagles were a professional soccer franchise that played in the American Soccer League from 1978 to 1981, with a one-year hiatus in 1980. The franchise played its first season in Mount Vernon, New York, then moved to Albany, New York for the 1979 and 1981 seasons, playing at Albany's Bleecker Stadium.

The Eagles' top scorer, Vogislav "Billy" Bolevic, led the ASL in scoring in both 1981. The Eagles sat out the 1980 season due to financial constraints. The franchise made the playoffs in both the 1979 and 1981 seasons, but did not advance past the first game in either playoff appearance.
