I'm from NJ. I'm always accused of having a NY accent. It's annoying. Because there is a difference between NY and NJ accents, but people don't take the time to know the difference. It's like saying someone has a "southern accent"...which one?
To my ear, they sound the same. Makes sense since I've never lived in either one to learn the difference.
