The package Stella mailed Lindsey said the NYPD Crime Lab is located at 5885 Broadway, 35th Floor in New York City. 5885 Broadway is in the vicinity of Van Cortland Park in Westchester County, as the Manhattan side of Broadway ends in the mid-5100s. Further, the NYPD Crime Lab is located in Queens, far from any skyscraper with at least 35 floors. See more »


Jo Danville: His story explains a lot. The plan to burglarize the office? Premeditated. That's why the security system was down. Scissors as a murder weapon, grabbed in a moment of rage. This murder was a crime of passion. Two separate crimes.
Detective Mac Taylor: So, Alex was attempting burglary at the same time Westwick was killing Sarah.
Jo Danville: Do you believe him?
Detective Mac Taylor: I will, when we find the proof.

Veasey, Pam, personality of spam
21 March 2016 | by JPBMILLIONSee all my reviews

Let us discuss the pile of wreckage Pam Veasey racked up in her career as showrunner on CSI:NEW YORK. This was the beginning of the end for this once great show. This woman is the architect of this show's fall from grace. The summer of 2010 was when she allowed CBS to screw over Melina Kanakaredes and move the show to the Friday night deathslot. The clock began officially ticking till the end with this episode. Pam Veasey is the reason this became the only CSI series to not reach 10 seasons, to not reach 10 years on the air, to not attain the vaunted status of a 200th episode.

For the way Veasey allowed CBS to stab Melina Kanakaredes in the back, she should have retired from television work. Pam Veasey has no honor, no backbone, no guts, no integrity, no affinity for the fans. That was seen on full display when she co-wrote the CSI:CYBER episode GOING VIRAL. Set in New York but did not include any characters from CSI:NEW YORK. This show got weaker and weaker and weaker as the years went on. I have watched so little of the Sela Ward DVD sets that I don't even know the episodes that contributed the DVD mintage music save for Season 8 since FLASH POP had such a distinct soundtrack. Without Melina Kanakaredes/Stella Bonasera, this show lost Its spark. It just continued to deteriorate.
