Really? There's a k there? I took the opener of the Daily Show wid Jawn Stoor to be a fine representation, and I never seemed to discern a k. Must work on my ears, obviously.

The opening shown here? I'll agree that's all "R" and little to no "K" but it isn't even close to a New York accent. That's the generic Mid-Western U.S. "no accent" accent.

Here's a New Yorker saying "New York", and also discussing the New York accent.

Definitely not a New York accent there, and it sounds to me like he tried to stretch out the "Yoooooorrrrrrrrk", and ran out of breath at the end.

If anything, I think the "k" is more pronounced in a New York accent than in other regional US accents.

There's some variation even within New York city.

I cannot think of any regional accent that drops the "k", but I don't know them all.

An overly-done western (cowboy) accent might, or at least sort of lose the 'k' to the next word.

This stuff's made in New York City!

Knew your city?!

Well, I thought I did, but what does that have to with picante sauce?
