Looking for novels taking place in New York.

I've been to New York twice in the past six months and I totally loved it. I'm looking for good fiction books which take place in New York and books in which the City has a role so important that it is depicted as a real character, such as Dos Passos' Manhattan Transfer, which is, for me, one of the best books that have ever been written.
I'm looking for authors who love/hate/have a very strong opinon about New York, or authors who just make their characters wander around the City, like Paul Auster, because I love the feeling of being there with them.
I'm opened to any suggestion, any kind of books. Thank you!
