#### Abstract

We consider the existence of a solution for the stationary Navier-Stokes equations describing an inhomogeneous incompressible fluid in a two dimensional unbounded Y-shaped domain. We show the existence of a weak solution such that the density and velocity of the fluid tend to densities and parallel flows, respectively, prescribed at some 'ends' of the domain. We allow prescribed densities at different ends to have distinct values. In fact, we obtain the density in the L$\infty$-space.
