Boro is also useful in NYC
Actually it may be useful in NJ also and maybe not so much for AK, as I could only find road sign images show "Boro" for NJ and NY.
After Alan's post, I wondered where I found "Boro" as an abbreviation for "Borough". I searched again and found it at a couple of sites including http://www.zip-codes.com/zip-code-datab ... ations.asp
as an abbreviation for both "Boro" and "Borough" in the Official USPS Common Abbreviation list.
Curiously however, I could not find this same list at the Official USPS website. And I suppose I'll scan this list and hopefully NOT find too many more to add to our test list.
Somewhere I found "Bor" as another one to test for.
But wait! Did you know the etymology for "Borough", says it came from "burg"? Did you know that Gerban?
