^ A lot of "us" on the Gulf side too. I have a niece and cousin in around the Tampa/St. Pete area. Step-mothers parents lived Ocala.

Spent two work weeks in suburban Raleigh this fall, and I swear it's like Long Island relocated to this town called Cary. It's dirt-cheap for NE corridor standards, rather pretty, and tons of high paying tech jobs in companies like SAS. But you have to like brand-new sprawl; there's nothing remotely urban or old.

Not sure if I heard a Southern accent on a white person in two weeks, but I heard NY, Philly and Boston accents. I barely hear NY accents anymore in NY. Probably have to head to FL or NC in the future if you want to hear old-school Brooklynese.
Last time I was in NC (couple of years ago) orange NY plates outnumbered NC plates. It was nuts. I bet there are more Bills/ Giants fans there than Panthers.
