This New Yorker has (as far as I can remember) always pronounced

tour to rhyme with lore rather than lure (in my speech, the difference

is that there's a glide after the l in lure; the vowels sound the same

to me). I'm 31, born and raised in Queens County; my mother immigrated

to New York (from Germany, via France) as a girl, and my father was

raised in the Bronx.
