If my understanding an memory are correct, a bunch of similarities are
found in the speech of:  New York City (and area), New Orleans,
Boston, and Baltimore.  (And possibly Charleston.)

Is it relevant that these are all seaports, and all (except possibly
Charleston) had a noticeable number of immigrants from Ireland?

Whatever you wish for me, may you have twice as much.
