Were New York or Philadelphia ever declared the capital of the United States?

Most of the information I've read pertains to Congress operating from different locations in the years after the U.S. was established. I believe I read that the constitution did declare New York as the capital but that Philadelphia was a temporary meeting place until Washington D.C. could be established.
