New York men may be tough, but that doesn’t mean they can’t show their sensitive side, and what a great city to do it in.

As least, that’s the sappy finding of a new “study” sponsored by Axe -- the folks who produce body sprays and washes allegedly designed to make women lose all rationality.

The Big Apple comes in third on the list of “Best Cities for Showing Off Your Sensitive Side.

Los Angeles and San Francisco were appropriately tied at first.

To produce the study, Axe worked with Bert Sperling’s “BestPlaces” to rank American cities based on criteria including types of magazine subscriptions, amount of cultural centers such a museums and music venues, types of retail stores and restaurants and the least number of “dude-friendly” activities like fishing and hunting.

That may explain why Nashville, Tenn., was listed as the very worst city to show off your sensitive side. 

Here’s the list, read it and weep:

1. Los Angeles/San Francisco, CA  (tied for first)
3. New York, NY
4. Boston, MA
5. Washington, DC
6. Newark, NJ
7. Chicago, IL
8. Santa Ana-Anaheim, CA
9. Miami, FL
10. Cambridge, MA
