Born To Win (1971) Brutal film about drug addicts in NY starring George Segal and featuring a very young Robert De Niro.

Godspell, while not about New York, uses New York locations to good effect, I think. I watched it last in early 2002 and at the end of the "All For the Best" production number felt as if I had been punched in the gut: it ends with a helicopter pull-back of the WTC.

Great film. I'd put The Exterminator as well but i think that might be 1980.
