New Yorkers Losing Their Accent?

I was distressed to read the report on the Telegraph's website suggesting the New York accent is in danger of disappearing because it's seen as less than correct. But it's a fantastic accent! How strange that it should be perceived so differently on opposite sides of the Atlantic! Imagine Detective Danny Messer, CSI NY, without his glorious Italian/ New Yorker accent - unthinkable!
 I won't insult New Yorkers by attempting to sign off in their fashion, but will simply say that I, for one, am a fan.
