Thread Name: Where are you?
Subject: RE: Where are you?!
Born and raised in California. My parents were born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, and when I was a kid, I picked up on their accent and spoke with a few Brooklynisms. For years, people first meeting me assumed I was from New York city. The accent has faded over the years, though it pops up again when I'm around New Yorkers.
