New York has celebrated Frank Lampard Day in honour of the former England midfielder scoring 300 career goals, reports BBC Sport.
Lampard was presented with a letter of proclamation as well as a commemorative shirt and ring before the DC United game.
And his two goals in the match have taken his total to six in the last six games.
"Even when I first came back, I was scoring a few but I felt I needed more fitness," he told reporters afterwards. "And I'm getting to that level now where I'm getting stronger and fitter.
"I never felt like I had a point to prove to people on the outside. I always had a point to prove to myself. I don't want this to be a place where I come here at this point in my career and it doesn't work. I want to make it work. I have that desire."
