New York is a city located in New York state and the largest city in America. It was also the site of a race between the Top Gear presenters and the final destination for the East Coast Road Trip. The race was the first to reach a TV studio on 59th street. Hammond lost the race as he didn't have sat-nav in his Porsche and because the size of New York scared him becaus he is a 'country boy'. Jeremy and James were neck and neck most of the way until Jeremy pulled off at an intersection and got lost via the many one way streets. James eventually won the race but nearly got lost after he hit the Columbus Circle. In addition to bragging rights the winner also got to appear on American TV however, it was not what they anticipated (yogatv.com).
