5 different accents in NYC:
In the Bronx, you punch your initial consonnant. You emphasize/stress them
because it's a very tough borrough.
In Queens, it's very nasal because it's a pain to live there. It's boring. Not fun.
In Brooklyn, you masticate/chew the vowels. It's very lively. It's a nice place
In Staten Island it's very obnoxious. Finally/eventually, in Manhattan,
they speak very rapidly, quickly because they are nervous, in a rush and busy.
