Turnstiles is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on May 19, 1976. Joel recorded Turnstiles in part as a celebration of his return to his native New York City. Three of the album's tracks reference New York: "Summer, Highland Falls", "New York State of Mind" and "Miami 2017 (Seen the Lights Go Out on Broadway)".

Turnstiles" was a transitional album for Billy and it's stood the test of time since 1976. I grew up hearing Billy Joel on the radio and had some of his 80s albums. I had never heard this whole album until I picked it up recently, and there are a couple of things that pleasantly surprised me. First, the remastering is fantastic. You can hear every nuance of the drumming, the bass is clear and strong, and you can hear all the percussive action in the piano. Second, this is a really earnest, wise, heartfelt album that isn't the slightest bit sappy. Some of Billy Joel's stuff is formulaic to my ears, and I'm not a big fan of The Stranger in particular

Shortly after Streetlife Serenade, Joel ditched California - and, by implication, sensitive Californian soft rock from sensitive singer/songwriters - for his hometown of New York

Joel’s fourth album is a homecoming album of sorts: it marks his return to his beloved New York after 3 tedious years in Los Angeles. He returns to a New York City near ruins. Crime is on the rise, the city almost crumbling amidst headlines like ‘'FORD TO CITY: DROP DEAD’‘. Thus, the LP is somewhat of a concept album, one half New York, the other Los Angeles
