I didn’t realize I had a “New Jersey accent” until I went to grad school in the midwest. Being from the shore, I always thought we had relatively weak accents compared to North Jersey or the South Jersey near Philly.

Really similar!! I’m from Monmouth county and I had the same thoughts. I don’t say water like my south jersey friends “wooder” lol but comments from Texas, Florida, NC/SC it’s apparently clear as day I’m from NJ.
