Northeastern Pennsylvania. I don't know why so many people here have that drawl, but it's noticeable amongst the customers where I work.

I just read someone's post on this site that South Jersey has many people flying Confederate flags...I don't understand it either, how so many southerners have found their way up north.

It's odd. PA/NY/NJ folks are overrunning NC, SC, and GA, so perhaps now they're moving up here to get back at us? LOL! I'll welcome any new residents we can get. Scranton's population has gone from 145,000 to 72,000 and continues to drop. It's like a limbo game---how low can you go? LOL!

LOL! Yeah, please move to PA...anyone. Actually, people are moving to Pittsburgh...it's just that so many people are dying here that population continues to shrink...sad.

I've heard southern accents in Tokyo, Japan...................but I'm pretty those people were simply Americans from the South.


With that being said, I've heard southern accents right here in Chicago. Thick ones too. And these are people born and raised in Chicago.


Detroit is another city that fools me. I've met SEVERAL people who were born and raised in Detroit, Wayne County Michigan. And yet I thought they were from Alabama. And I'm from Alabama, so I know a southern accent when I hear one. It's really weird.
