I don't know ASL, so I don't know a sign for Detroit, Ann Arbor, or Oberlin (my US places).
So I'm posting the sign for Kathmandu, the city where I learned to sign!

I am a West Coaster, and I must admit that people get East Coast city signs mixed up along with our own city signs. But this is how I personally sign the 4 commonly confused "B" cities, since I am very picky and have been known to correct people at times. ;-) It seems to match what you sign, Kim.

Boston, Massachusetts

Baltimore, Massachusetts

Berkeley, California

Burbank, California

Hi everyone:
those of us in Boston, Massachusetts sign it thus:



and refer to Berkeley, CA thus:

But some of my signing friends tell me that when you're on the West Coast, it's the other way around!
Best,

NAMES OF CITIES and STATES Around the World

Thank you, Ingvild, Charles and Stefan for your signs!

I would suggest that you add your signs to the International Sign Dictionary online:

SignPuddle for International Signs Dictionary

I just copied mine for La Jolla, California from the ASL Dictionary to the International Dictionary, and I hope you can do the same for your signs too…

And I hope more names of cities, states, countries and other international signs can be added too…

Here is what we have so far…and I really like all four spellings! Thanks to you all…

Val ;-)
