We are led to believe because of Angela's statement that he and Angela lived in Newark, NJ. Why is the funeral being held in Miami? It wouldn't make sense for Angela to drag his body, friends and relatives all the way to Florida for his funeral just so his mother and sister could attend. Phil didn't even grow up in Florida. He grew up in Brooklyn. Not only that, but Phil's poker buddies also must have found their way over 1000 miles to Florida to pay their respects.
Also, Sophia mentions that Phil is being buried in the "family plot". Since their family is from Brooklyn, why would their "family plot" be in Miami?
