Because that is its name, just as much as "New York" is. That's why the word "city" is capitalized. Because it's part of the name. The words "city" and "state" are added to New York City and New York State in order to differentiate between the two. Otherwise, people can get confused about which one you're referring to. The word "state" in New York State is capitalized, for the same reason the word "city" in New York City is capitalized: because names are proper nouns, and the words "city" and "state" are part of the name.
