City lost a 3-2 lead in the 73rd minute as Jader Obrian connected for his second goal of the match past goalkeeper Sean Johnson as he sent a right-footed shot from the left side of the penalty area.
As it turned out, Obrian had the first and final words for the visitors as his fourth-minute goal gave lifted Dallas into a 1-0 edge.
NYCFC tied it in the 20th minute as Maxi Moralez fired a right-footed shot from the right side of the box for a 1-1 deadlock off a Jesus Medina feed following a corner kick.
The hosts grabbed a 2-1 lead in the 57th minute as Medina struck from close range.
This time it was Dallas’ turn to score as Jesus Ferreira, off a Ricardo Pepi assist, rifled a shot from the middle of the area for a 2-2 deadlock.
NYCFC found the net a third time in the 68th minute as Talles Magno scored from close range off a Gudmundur Thórarinsson cross.
