I am aware that people use the Past Simple tense when they speak about a finished time (last year, last month, or in 1805, for example).
I also understand that, when the sentence uses the Present Perfect tense, I cannot use those words; I should use phrases like today, this week, or this month.
Can I use the Past Perfect tense with those phrases, as in the following sentences?
Have you been to New York?
Yes, I had been there last year.
Please note that I am not referring to by last year or until last year.
