New York, New York, which peaked at on the R&B charts, details the poverty, hopelessness, and nihilism of 1983 New York City. The City had been in the doldrums since its near-bankruptcy in 1975, and the ghettos had not improved since. While Melle Mel discusses at length the crime and despair in the City’s poor neighborhoods, he makes sure to highlight that even central districts like 42nd Street were suffering during this time.

It made on the R&B Singles chart, on the New Zealand Singles Chart and on the UK Singles Chart. It is frequently claimed that the song La Di Da Di by Slick Rick, released in 1985, is the first rap song to include the word "bitch"

New York New York, big city of dreams. And everything in New York ain't always what it seems. You might get fooled if you come from out of town. But I'm down by law and I know my way around. Too much, too many people, too much (aha-ha). Too much, too many people, too much, Raaah! A castle in the sky, one mile high. Built to shelter the rich and greedy. Rows of eyes, disguised as windows. Looking down on the poor and the needy. Miles of people, marching up the avenue. His wife took the kids, the car and the crib. In this man's world, so much for Women's Lib. New York New York big city of dreams. But everything in New York ain't always what it seems. But I'm down by law, and I know my way around.
