The most argued accent in the country. A lot of people in New Jersey dont have the accent. But a lot of the state do, some thicker than most. Most of the south part of the state don't have an accent and also in North West jersey where the accent isn't as common. The accent is mostly found in the North Eastern region of the state like Bergen, Hudson, Passaic, Essex, and Union counties.
The accent is similar to the NY accent but at times there is a distinct difference that most people cannot tell apart.
