New York: A Documentary Film is a seven-part American documentary on the history of New York City produced by Ric Burns that originally aired in the U.S. on PBS. The first four two-hour installments, which covered the history of the city from its founding to the turn of the 20th century, originally aired in the fall of 1999. The second two installments, which covered much of the 20th century, aired in 2001 in the weeks following the September 11, 2001 attacks. The final installment, made after the attacks and covering the World Trade Center from its building to the aftermath of its destruction, aired in 2002.

The series was written by Burns and James Sanders. Several noted New York City historians, including Mike Wallace, Kenneth T. Jackson, and Robert Caro participated in the making of the series and consultants and appeared on camera. It was narrated by David Ogden Stiers. Other notable figures who appeared in the series include Rudolph Giuliani (then the mayor of New York City), former mayor Ed Koch, former New York governor Mario Cuomo, poet Allen Ginsberg, director Martin Scorsese, and billionaire Donald Trump.
