Sidewalks of New York is a comedic drama about the interconnected lives of six New Yorkers. Tommy Reilly (Edward Burns) is a television producer who was recently dumped by his girlfriend. One day he meets a school teacher, Maria Tedesko (Rosario Dawson), and though the two of them connect, she is afraid to make a real commitment to him.

Griffin's wife, Annie Mattthews (Heather Graham) soon falls in love with Tommy, creating a strange web of romantic intrigue and deception.
