New York is a hamlet in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated in the Lincolnshire Fens, and on the B1192 road near Coningsby 11.5 miles (18.5 km) north from Boston. In the 2001 census, New York's population was recorded at less than 150.

The hamlet was named after the city of York in Yorkshire[citationneeded] - unlike New York City in the US, which was named after the 17th-century Duke of York, James Stuart, the future James II.

A Methodist church was built here in 1872.[1] It was purchased by auction by a private buyer in July 2011.[2]

New York County Primary School is situated on the Langrick Road, 1.5 miles (2.4 km) to the south.

The hamlet is the inspiration for the Gavin Bryars piece New York.

David Vincour (born 14 March 1984 in Brno) is a Czech ice dancer. With partner Kamila Hájková, he is a five-time Czech national champion and competed at the 2010 Winter Olympics.

Career

Vincour began skating at age five, stopped until he was 12, then took up ice dancing and competed for Austria with Sabine Pichler and Barbara Herzog.[1] He then competed with Kamila Hájková for the Czech Republic.[2] The two are the 2006-2010 Czech national champions and the 2005 Ondrej Nepela Memorial bronze medalists.

During the 2006–07 season, Vincour was hospitalized for an extended period due to intestinal problems and underwent surgery and, as a result, they missed the World Championships.[3] After the 2009–10 season, they decided to take some time off from competition and Vincour began skating in shows.[3]
