The New York Mountains are a small mountain range 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), 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 a southwest by northeast trending range, about 30 miles (48 km) long with the northeast in Nevada. Searchlight, Nevada and Cal-Nev-Ari, Nevada lie to the northeast and east, respectively, across the Piute Valley. The Castle Mountains lie to the southeast with the Piute Range adjacent to the southeast.
The northeast flowing Ivanpah Valley drains the northwest side of the New York Mountains with the Ivanpah Mountains across the valley to the northwest. The McCullough Range of Nevada lies adjacent to the north.
