"This section of Carson City, with its towering shade trees, narrow streets, red-bellied robins, feeding mule deer, and a world of green away from the main drag, is quite unlike anything in Nevada. Let's be honest: it's easy to picture a bit of New England in here. Then there's the Bliss Mansion. If it wasn't for the Nevada license plate parked on the curbside, I could almost begin picturing Maine lobster, the port of calling, and a manicured town green. Green. That's not a word to be used lightly in these parts." -- Journal Entry, June 2007
