Sort of. There are others. She spoke so quickly that I had to listen to it twice. Whippersnappers. The older folks in the 1960s didn't sound anything like that, but a fair amount of them were from Philadelphia.

It must be, because I didn’t hear any accent and I’m from South Jersey.

All I can say is that when I am in south jersey (Atlantic City), I can definitely tell who the locals are from their accent. I actually like their accent. To me it sounds like a very weak southern accent in which the only vowel pronounced very differently is the long "O" sound. It sounds neat.

This is an easy one; South Jersey has a Philadelphia accent, awful as that might be.

Only some of them. There are some odd accents in the far reaches of Southwestern New Jersey. Also, some who land a job in Philadelphia choose to live in the Jersey 'burbs. It's not unusual to meet someone in the Cherry Hill area who has moved there from a different state or country. Wooder territory is getting smaller.

She was born in Italy and then moved to North Jersey and now lives in South Jersey. She used to live near Landisville off 54 and now lives in the South Harrison-Swedesboro area right by a winery that I forget the name of.
