    I always thought about that… Kansas City stretches into several counties, and both Kansas Cities are adjacent to one another, on either side of the Missouri/Kansas border…

    Then, it’s funny that there are all of these Portlands, Augustas, Columbuses, Columbias, and in Maryland, there’s an unincorporated area called Texas…. and then there’s Salem, and the Ocean City in Md., NJ, Florida and Washington, and a whole other bunch of geographic curiosities….

    We also have a borough (town) named Wyoming in PA, but it is not in Wyoming County, which predates the state of WY. The borough is in adjacent Luzerne County.

    Baltimore was named for Charles Calvert, who held the English noble title Lord Baltimore.

    There is also a Moscow, PA, and not far from Bethlehem, there is a Nazareth. There’s also an East Berlin and a Bangor.
    In the Philadelphia area alone, there are a host of place names from the UK. Let’s start out with Bristol, Dublin, Southampton, Chalfont, Warminster, Warrington, Warwick, Solebury, all of which are in Bucks County, named for Buckinghamshire in England.
    Nearby in other counties are Horsham, Cheltenham, Chester, Lancaster, Reading (pronounced “redding” like the English town), and even Nottingham. Delaware has Dover while New Jersey has Deptford.

    I work for PA’s state-owned/operated liquor store system. I had to ask customers for their ZIP Code last October.
    Where I live, in the heart of redneck country near Hershey, PA, I couldn’t believe all the blank stares that I got.
    One local customer asked me, as serious as a heart attack, “What’s a ZIP Code?”
