Sorry, but I don't buy it.Jackie's father was your classic William Bendix-type "Toity-Toid and Toid" kind of guy.
New Orleanians of Irish and/or Italian ancestry have a similar accent. When I first moved here, I used to think there must be a lot of transplanted New Yorkers living here! I have a friend, born and raised in Gretna (the West Bank of the Mississippi River), and every time she travels out of state she gets asked if she's from New York.
I thought Jeff had a Brooklyn accent.
I do, of a sort. After all, Bernie Sanders, Chuck Schumer and I graduated from the same high school, as did Cap'n Bob's favorite Judge Judy.
Also the Notorious RBG.
