"York (First Exit to Brooklyn)" is an album by The Foetus Symphony Orchestra featuring Lydia Lunch, released in 1997 by Thirsty Ear. "York" is Big Cat Records #ABB148XCD.

As opposed to every other Foetus album, "York" is a wholly collaborative work. A "travelogue and exploration of DUMBO (Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass)" [http://foetus.org/discog/york.html] , "York" features J. G. Thirlwell as composer and conductor for a group of notable New York City musicians. The musicians, almost all of which had worked with Thirlwell previously, were encouraged to freely improvise on their parts. Lydia Lunch, a regular Thirlwell collaborator, narrates the proceedings.
