In 1917 the New York was assigned to British waters and assisted the British Grand Fleet, being mainly responsible for blockade and escort missions.
The New York returned to training and participated in various problem-solving exercises, being modernized in 1926. Until Pearl Harbor, the US had maintained neutrality in WWII with the New York on Atlantic neutral patrols. After the US declared war on Japan, the New York operated in North Africa (Operation 'Torch') and spent time protecting the North Atlantic and Mediterranean convoys.
In 1945 the New York transferred to the Pacific Fleet and participated in the battles of Iwo Jima and Okinawa. During the battle, the New York received minor damage in a kamikaze attack.
After the war the New York took part in Operation 'Magic Carpet', the repatriation of US military personnel from overseas theatres of war. In 1946 the New York was used in Operation 'Crossroads' as a target for atomic tests, remaining afloat but was eventually sunk in 1948 following use in target practice by other navy ships and aircraft.
