Police officer Kain Walker has gone to great lengths to prevent his coworkers, family, and friends from finding out he's gay. But when Kain meets Mel Fredericks, he realizes at once that his whole world is about to change. For the first time Kain wants more than a one-night stand, but a relationship carries risks, discovery not least among them. Battling with others' expectations and biases—and his own—Kain struggles to balance his desire for secrecy with his feelings for Mel at a time when being out could cost him dearly...

I wasn't expecting much when I started this manga but it ended up surprising me. It tells the story of two men falling in love in New York. One is a cop and the other is a vulnerable young man with a troubled past. They face a lot of difficulties throughout the whole story that made me want to cry. Overall it was very touching and quite enjoyable.

Its a very heart warming story. I really enjoyed reading it. I actually cried at the end.
Its about the story of a police man hiding his real self as a gay from all his colleagues, friends and family, and a very vulnerable but kind-hearted guy with a dark past. I remember reading how many times Kain Walker told his meeting with Mel Fredericks is a destiny.
I really thought nothing much about this story but it turned out very good. I really recommend this story. I love it!

Well, I just finished bingeing this manga, and I would have to say this is one of the best yaoi/shounen ai manga I have ever read.

Story (9):

Most yaoi manga I have read are pretty cliched when it comes to the story. If you take the basic premise, it's not that original. But original stories are hard to write and I think this one grabs the reader's attention by the way it tells the story. It may be a love at first sight kind of thing, but there's so much more to this story. It brings up many issues in the gay community, HIV/AIDS, cheating, abuse, read more

Honestly, I'm surprised New York New York doesn't have a higher viewership. It's a solidly good realistic-type bl manga, but being quite old (published in 1994) and having an art style that can get some getting used to probably causes its under-the-radar status.

It is an enjoyable story that is easy to read and has a happy ending, despite the difficulties along the way, especially so in the beginning where Kain acts like a super bitch. This is where he gets his title of a "very unlikeable main character" but he changes significantly towards the ending for the better.

The story has its fair share of read more
