    Peter Falks's accent in Columbo series

    Hello,
    I was wondering, what accent does lieutenant Columbo speak with?
    I mean, it's oviously American. But does it have any regional features? Although the series set in LA,
    P. Falk was born in NY. I also read, that it was typical of working class?

    Definitely a New York accent. Perhaps a New Yorker could be more specific. Jewish or Italian New York?
