Comment(by woodbri):

 Another way of doing this is to create a gazetteer that maps the USPS city
 names to the preferred city name then standardize the city name into the
 preferred city name. There are about 40K unique city names associated with
 zipcodes but about 7K city names have multiple standardizations based on
 state. For example AARON(GA) -> PORTAL and AARON(KY) -> ALBANY. This would
 not be a problem is the standardization were all done in the context of
 the state.
