New York, was a village in the Ignatyevka Mennonite settlement in the province of Ekaterinoslav (now Dnipropetrovsk), in Ukraine. The Chortitza settlement bought an estate here in 1888 for its landless members and founded six villages in the following year. Of these villages, New York, with a population (1913) of 926, and Nikolayevka became the centers of the settlement. Each of the two villages had a Zentralschule, a Mennonite Brethren meetinghouse, and a Mennonite meetinghouse. With its subsidiaries Borissovo and Grigoryevka and with the forestry service unit at Azov, the New York Mennonite congregation had a membership (in 1905) of 2,275.
