The Best New York Accent

Stuck at home during the pandemic, filmmaker Nicolas Heller decided to hold a contest on Instagram to find the person with the best New York accent.

I miss going out for walks and discovering flowers blooming in Spring. Before we moved from our old place, I walked with a friend early every morning and it was great to find signs of Spring. On the Promenade Plantée I used to see Japanese ladies not only doing Tai Chi but arm movements as they walked and I started doing them too to keep my arms and shoulders flexible so when I was with my friend, we would incorporate them into our walk as well. Since we moved the only walk I had was with Mauri...
