Atlanta-- ATL

I'm sure there are more Omaha-OMA, Des Moines-DM, Cedar Rapids-CR, Dubuque-DBQ, Quad Cities-QC, Decorah-DCO (Those are more local ones around my state, we use them a lot here, especially DBQ, CR, DM, WLO, IC (WLO-Waterloo, IC-Iowa City)
According to natives and the PA Supreme Court,
Pittsburgh = PGH

PIT = Airport code for Pittsburgh International

I dont think the point was airport codes.

Miami's nicknames are 'the M.I.A' or 3-0-5.. cant think of any others.

Chgo. is old, you don't see it much anymore, but it is definitely a local abbreviation.

I used to think police departments in every city followed their most used abbreviations, like NYPD, LAPD, DCPD, SFPD.

I thought Chicago might be CHIPD, but its only CPD.

Boston is BPD.

I guess it only works if the abbreviation is two letters instead of three.
