Abstract: We present the results of 1.5--2.5 microns near-infrared medium-resolution long-slit spectroscopy of six nearby Seyfert galaxies, both parallel to the ionization cone or jet and perpendicular to it. Broad Brγ is detected in three galaxies (NGC 1386, NGC 1566, and NGC 3227), of which NGC 1386 is traditionally classified as Seyfert 2, and coronal lines in two galaxies. In five galaxies the FWHM size of the 1 --> 0 S(1) nuclear core is larger perpendicular to the cone or jet than parallel to it, in agreement with the unified models. The values of nuclear NH2 are generally higher in Seyfert 2s than in Seyfert 1s.
