I want you to know that the only reason I have this picture is because Rachel wanted us to stand ridiculously close to some NYC cops for a slightly extended period of time to hear if they really talk like in the movies. The verdict? Yes they do. Totally worth the covert op.
And while we’re on the topic of thick accents of awesomeness, when we were at the JFK airport buying a cup of peppermint tea, the guy behind us in line was this big brawny airport employee (I picture him to be one of the guys that loads luggage into the planes. Or maybe he carries the planes to the runway – he just looked that strong) who has this super thick NY accent, orders an incredibly girly sugary seasonal espresso drink. It made us giggle (from a safe distance) when we heard him talk vs what he ordered.
