Gennaro lives with his ailing grandpa, who sits outside holding tight to his last quarter. But grandpa's not ready to die, he has some unfinished business with a woman from his past and he enlists Gennaro to act as his emissary.
Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio,
The three detectives fight every kind of criminal all over New York City. The show featured many actual New York City locations, as well as episodes based on real New York City police cases.Written by

ABC announced in March 1968 the show's cancellation. A month and a half later, because of improved Nielsen ratings, ABC announced that the show would return for the 1968-1969 season. (Articles from New York Times, March 11, 1968, and April 30, 1968.) See more »
Shows like Homicide owe a debt of gratitude to NYPD. This show was gritty and felt real as the detectives worked NYC fighting crime. The always reliable Jack Warden was the boss, Frank Converse was young Johnny Corso, and the under-rated Robert Hooks was Jeff Ward (whose wife Ethel was played by Denise Nicholas). And many, many later famous faces showed up on this show each week. It was a great show and it deserves a more than honorable mention!
