I Love New York/New York, New York from Madonna/On the Town is a mash-up featured in New York, the twenty-second and final episode of Season Two. It is sung by the New Directions with solos from Artie, Brittany, Finn, Mercedes, Rachel, and Santana.

The song is performed in various landmark locations in New York City, as Quinn suggests that they should allow "the city to write songs for them," while attempting to write original songs for Nationals. They end up at a fountain in New York, finishing off the song.

At Nationals, Dustin Goolsby, the director of Vocal Adrenaline, mentions the New Directions' New York "travelling" and says that while Will had them enjoying the sights, Vocal Adrenaline was preparing for Nationals.
