    yes! thank you! i was just cringing at this whole thread because i'm from New Jersey and the people I know (including myself) make fun of people from New Jersey who have those italian/jersey accents (because it's so rare you actually find people who have the really bad accent)

    I was just thinking ugh when I saw they made a real housewives from nj because you just know they probably purposely cast the worst offenders of all nj sterotypes...but if they are from bergan county they shouldn't have accents...so i don't know we will see.

    ...and I really have no accent because when I travel people ask me where i'm from and I say nj and they are always like but you have no accent!

    It's a town about 17 miles northwest of the George Washington Bridge (upper Manhattan). It is very affluent with a mix of older ranch/colonial homes with a fair amount of land and new McMansions. People buy the lots with the older homes and knock them down to build the McMansions. More and more of this is happening and so what was once a town with beautiful trees and lots of scenery is now becoming overdeveloped. There is a lot of new money there and a high proportion of the people are in real estate, contracting, entertainment, law or medicine.

    I don't live there but I live in a nearby town and drive through to get to my office every day.

    The Jersey accent is alive and well in my part of the state.

    I find the closer to New York, the worse the accent, so Bergen County should be "accented".

    I live in the Southern Central part of NJ and I find more people here have either no accent or Philly accents rather than the stereotypical "Joisey" accent.
    Is it Happy Hour yet?

    Yeah that's probably the case. Rev Run's family lived in Saddle River and they had the typical NY style accent more than joisey ( love that). I have family friends in Teaneck and they sound NY as well...

    Yes the closer you get to NY the heavier the accent but it is closer to a NY accent. I'm also based in Central NJ and have no accent whatsoever. Although if I'm with a person long enough I take on their accent for some odd reason whether it be my brothers family from NC, friends from Boston, or a British accent.

    ah, central jersey definitely has an accent, i smile every time i hear it. compare the way central jerseyans say "didn't", for example. it's just not as strong as those from north jersey or da bronx.

    I do that do. But I think this is weird. I went to college at the University of Iowa, which if 45 mins away from where I live, and everyone kept asking me what part of Chicago I was from because I have a Chicago accent. Um, never lived there. Too funny.
