[Watch] Visitors Try to Pronounce Names of New York Towns
If you're not a New York native, chances are you'll have a difficult time trying to pronounce the names of our towns. Watch these non-New Yorkers try to pronounce names of New York towns.
Annaquassacook, Aquebogue, Asharoken, Cahoonzie, Canandaigua, Canajoharie, and Coxsockie, are just a handful of New York towns that are difficult to pronounce; and we haven't even covered the rest of the letters in the alphabet.
I grew up in Schoharie County New York in a town called Middleburgh. The word "Middleburgh" is relatively easy to articulate, but the neighboring towns have names that almost always throw out of towners for a loop.
It's always fun to try and watch visitors pronounce Cobleskill, Esperance, and Blenheim. If you're clueless as to how to pronounce those Schoharie County towns, how many more tongue twisters exist in the other 61 counties?
