Characters / CSI: NY

The Whole Cast

A bunch of attractive scientists/cops. This is a CSI spin-off after all.

Mac Taylor

Stella Bonasera

Danny Messer

Lindsay "Montana" Messer (formerly Monroe)

Don Flack

Sheldon Hawkes

Sid Hammerback.

  • Anonymous Benefactor: The newspapers dubbed him 'the Guardian Angel' for his $1 million gifts to families several victims whose cases had really stuck with him.
  • The Coroner
  • Fan Nick Name: Sid's Creepy Place.
  • Non-Idle Rich
  • Rags to Riches: He wasn't exactly poor before, but he wasn't wealthy either. Now he's made a bundle on his pillow invention.
  • Secretly Dying: He revealed to Jo that he has advanced Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Word of God says he will not die onscreen,but it's indicated he's heading for an end.

Adam Ross

Det. Jessica Angell

Aiden Burn

Jo Danville

Peyton Driscoll

  • Put on a Bus: In Season 4.
    • The Bus Came Back: For one episode towards the end of Season 6; she was meant to make more appearances, but Kanakaredes/Stella Bonasera's departure led to her character becoming a victim of Chuck Cunningham Syndrome for Season 7 instead.
  • False Soulmate: To Mac.
  • Second Love: One of the candidates for Mac; this arc and her character were aborted when the character of Jo Danville replaced Stella Bonasera.

Reed Garret

Mac's stepson. Reed is the son Mac's late wife, Claire, gave up for adoption before meeting Mac. When Reed went looking for her biological mother, he met Mac instead.

Christine Whitney

The sister of an old friend of Mac's who was killed in the line of duty. When one of the team made Mac a Facebook page to demonstrate during a case how easily someone could be impersonated, Mac left the page up, and he and Christine reconnected and have been dating ever since. After going through a lot in seasons 8 and 9, Mac proposed to her at the end of season 9, and she accepted.
  • Bound and Gagged: When she's abducted in "Seth and Apep."
  • Heroic B.S.O.D.: She's clearly having residual issues from her ordeal in the NY/LV crossover, as evidenced by "Blood Actually."
  • Second Love: to Mac.(Peyton subverted it, they appeared in love, but it was obvious by the end that he wasn't ready, and she ultimately left him. His bond with Christine is much more obvious and genuine-feeling.)
  • Supreme Chef

Detective Jamie Levato

The third recurring female detective after Aiden and Angell.
