Premise:
Case of an old cop and a young cop on the New York police force 65th Precinct.
Review:
"First-rate location-shot crime-in-the-streets series with strong
stories, excellent guest stars, and a tendency to crazy titles.
A milestone in television production."
Leslie Halliwell

Each episode ended with the phrase:-
"There are 8 million stories in the Naked City - this has been one of them"
In fact they managed to film 138 of them - no mean feat.

The same producer - Herbert B. Leonard was also responsible
for "Route 66" - which again was highly regarded for its location filming, strong stories, and guest stars.

Production values - HIGH
