New York, I Love You est, comme pour Paris, je t'aime, un travail collectif de onze courts-métrages, faisant chacun environ dix minutes. Les réalisateurs ayant participé au film ont filmé leur segment dans les cinq boroughs de New York. Chaque segment n'a pas de lien direct avec les autres mais toutes tournent toutes autour du même thème : trouver le grand amour et le plaisir du sexe.
