The sad part is that through evolution, partly encouraged by TV & movies, the USA is losing their regional accents. How often does one hear young people in New York speak "Americanese", or as a matter of fact how about young people from the south without heavy Southern drawls? When we used to watch Westerns, that ole western slang is history. I do recognize Gov Como's Queens accent because unlike other city regions Queens has a slight roll of their Rs.
