** Everyone was to have had a day off episode, but Mac,Danny(who was to have his own along with the one of Lindsay's own despite their marriage),Hawkes and Sid never got one, perhaps due to the compressed season or a desire to do a crossover in hopes of boosting ratings at the last minute.Spoilers said Mac's would involve him taking a day off at Christine's urging, then getting stuck on a broken subway. It was announced as episode 15, but this episode later became the second half of the crossover with ''{{Series/CSI}}''. ** Andy Garcia and Ray Liotta were offered the mac role,but turned it down. The character was named Rick Castelluci at that time; Gary Sinise comvinced them to change it after taking the part.

* TheCastShowoff:Several actors have had the chance to show off skills on-screen. Sinise appeared with his Lt.Dan Band in "Stuck On You". In "Tri-Borough", there's a scene at an art gallery. Flack makes a remark about the paintings not selling well, and Danny says "yeah I can see why" while nodding his head toward one of the paintings. The one he's indicating was actually made by the actor who plays Danny, Carmine Giovinazzo. He also has a band, Cesau, but it hasn't appeared on the show as yet. Also, Danny's aborted baseball career was based on Carmine's own injury-aborted baseball dreams, and there was one ep where he showed off his pitching ability. Also, Danny's tattoo is the actor's real one. Several episodes also have Melina Kanakaredes showing off her knowledge of fluent Greek. (her parents are Greek immigrants and she and her family often visit the country).

* In "Silent Night", MarleeMatlin plays a deaf woman, Gina Mitchum. The actress is actually deaf, so all the sign language is real. Incidentally, Matlin also [[YouLookFamiliar guest starred on the original]] ''{{Series/CSI}}'' once.

Gary Sinise says he gave the character his last name in tribute to that character. *** The character's first name, by the way, is after Gary's son, [=McCanna=], whose nickname is Mac. ** Also, in "Playing with Matches" the QuipToBlack is "Houston, we have a problem." Referencing another movie Gary Sinise was in, ''Film/{{Apollo 13}}''. Although his character in that movie was not the one to say that line. ** Mac playing bass in the jazz band is a direct reference to Gary Sinise's role in his own rock band, the Lt. Dan Band. Several Lt. Dan Band members played members of the jazz band. ** Carmine Giovinazzo's backstory of having to give up an aspiring baseball career was incorporated into the backstory of his character, Danny Messer. ** Mac helping with the Brooklyn Wall of Remembrance in 'Indelible' in season one's "Night Mother", though they only briefly share screentime.8 was based on Gary Sinise's real life help with the project.

* The episode "All Access" had a website tie-in. Stella's psycho boyfriend used the website aresanob.com, and an ad at the end of the ep told viewers to visit the site to see what Stella saw. This was also the opening page of the site "Click here to see what Stella saw". The content after the click was the sex tape Frankie posted online and then an extended promo for the ep. (if you're hoping to check it out now, it's long gone, you'll get redirected to the CBS website.) * Stella's HIV scare was a project in collaboration with the website knowhivaids.org
to:
* The ExecutiveMeddling: [[spoiler: Killing off Angell due to [[http://www.tvguidemagazine.com/what-the-keck/emmanuelle-vaugier-budget-cuts-killed-me-1111.html budget cuts]]]] Also probably the reason season 6 has dropped the TwoLinesNoWaiting format in favor of one case per episode "All Access" only. ** Not quite executive meddling but [[spoiler: Melina Kanakaredes' departure in season 7 is due to a pay cut that CBS had a website tie-in. Stella's psycho boyfriend to offer.]] * FridayNightDeathSlot: Starting in season seven, ''CSI: NY'' aired Friday at 9pm Eastern. Season 9 was airing an hour earlier,at 8pm Eastern, then went back to its old 9pm Eastern slot after ''MadeInJersey'' got the ax. It lasted three seasons in the Friday slots. * HeyItsThatGuy: [[Film/TheAvengers Agent Coulson]] is in an episode of season 1! ** And Stella Bonasera used to be [[Series/DueSouth Constable Fraser's]] [[OldFlame former lover]] and [[DatingCatwoman a bank robber.]] ** [[TheStand Harold Lauder and Stu Redman]] meet again in season one's "Night Mother", though they only briefly share screentime. * TheOtherDarrin: A variation of sorts. Mac's wife Claire was played by the website aresanob.com, same actress during both of her onscreen appearances (the flashbacks of 'Indelible' and an ad at Mac's NearDeathExperience in 'Near Death'), but the end pictures of Claire that Mac showed Reed in season 4 were of a different woman. Probably justified, as the ep told show makers couldn't know then that they'd need someone to actually play her onscreen down the road. Still, there's no excuse for her being brunette in the pics and a blonde onscreen. The writers either forgot the pics, hoped the [[ViewersAreGoldfish viewers to visit the site to see what Stella saw. This was also the opening page of the site "Click here to see what Stella saw". The content after the click was the sex tape Frankie posted online and then an extended promo for the ep.

* The season 9 finale "Today Is Life" was based on a real life incident in TheSeventies when a cop shot an unarmed man and a mob really did try to storm the precinct. * Mac reveals in season 9 that he can't recall the events leading up to his being shot, a type of amnesia that isn't uncommon in trauma patients. A few months after filming the season 8 finale, Gary Sinise suffered a similar memory loss to Mac's, minus the lingering speech aphasia, after being involved in a car accident that fortunately didn't severely injure him, but left him with a rather nasty concussion, along with a lot of bumps and bruises. * An actual dead body was found in one of the buildings used for filming, but it wasn't a murder case, rather, it was a long-dead tenant who got overlooked somehow. It bore similarities to the episode "Not What It Looks Like", but without the homicide aspect. * Lindsay Monroe/Messer's birthplace is possibly a left-over portion of the backstory of Catherine Willows from the original ''{{Series/CSI}}''. For a time, the official character bios on CBS's website listed Catherine as being from Bozeman, Montana, but that was scrapped sometime before the finalized version of her backstory was revealed onscreen. * In "Silent Night", MarleeMatlin plays a deaf woman, Gina Mitchum. The actress is actually deaf, so all the sign language is real. Incidentally, Matlin also [[YouLookFamiliar guest starred on the original]] ''{{Series/CSI}}'' once.
