NYC was the capital of the US from 1785-1790. Unless you mean where have all the state capitals been in NY? Albany, NYC was prior to 1797.

No, Albany was not the capitol of the US. It was Harrisburg Pennsylvania; established in 1787. However, the capital is no longer Harrisburg, but Philidelphia. The official U.S. capital is Washington D.C.
