“Hello, New York!” Barry Manilow shouted. “It’s good to be home.”

The 600 guests at the 92nd Street Y spring gala on Monday went nuts as they cheered, hollered and wriggled in their seats through a throbbing Las Vegas production of classic Manilow hits.

The singing star said that although he’s originally from Brooklyn, this was the first time he performed at the venerable 92nd Street Y. But he remembers coming here for the Lyrics and Lyricists program.
