THE BRONX - New Yorkers often have a distinguished accent, and a new survey suggests it may be more attractive than they think.

According to, the New York accent is the second most attractive in North America, only getting beat out by the southern drawl.

The dating website says 2,000 users took part in the survey, calling the New York talk short, sharp, direct and recognizable.

News 12 asked Bronx residents what they thought of the survey. Many agreed and were proud of their accents, but others leaned in the other direction.
