The New York Mountains are found in northeastern San Bernardino County in California, USA; the range's northeastern area lies in southeastern Nevada. The range lies just south of the small community of Ivanpah, and north of the Lanfair Valley. The mountains are part of the mountain ranges, cones, mountains, and landforms in the Mojave National Preserve. The mountains reach an elevation of 7,533 feet (2,296 m),[2] and run in a mostly southwest-northeasterly direction between the Providence Mountains and the McCullough Range approximately five miles into Nevada and border the northwest corner of the Piute Valley of Nevada-California.

The New York Mountains are part of the southeast border of the Great Basin Divide. The Piute Wash Watershed[3] empties eastward into the Colorado River.
