Allmusic.com gave New York a 5 star review:

If the city of New York didn’t exist, Lou Reed would have had to invent it in order to create a suitable environment for himself, a place where high art and street-level rock & roll stand side by side. New York figured so prominently in Reed’s music, it’s surprising it took him until 1989 to make an album simply called New York, a set of 14 scenes and sketches from the city that was his spiritual home. As a songwriter, New York is the strongest and best-realized set of songs in Reed’s solo catalog; while his superb 1982 comeback The Blue Mask sometimes found him reaching for his effects, New York’s accumulated details and deftly drawn caricatures hit bull’s-eye after bull’s-eye for 57 minutes, all with an easy stride and striking lyrical facility….. Produced with subtle intelligence and a welcome absence of flash, New York is a masterpiece of literate, adult rock & roll, and the finest album of Lou Reed’s solo career.
