New York is a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated in the Lincolnshire Fens, and on the B1192 road near Coningsby north from Boston. In the 2001 census, New York's population was recorded at less than 150.

The hamlet was named after the city of York in Yorkshire - unlike New York City in the US, which was named after the 17th-century Duke of York, James Stuart, the future James II.

A Methodist church was built here in 1872. It was purchased by auction by a private buyer in July 2011.

New York County Primary School is situated on the Langrick Road, to the south.

The hamlet is the inspiration for the Gavin Bryars piece New York.

After the US September 11, 2001 attacks, the village road signs were decorated with flowers out of respect for those killed.
