Maysville Had More Millionaires

The Cardinal is one of Amtrak®'s prestigious Superliner® trains. According to their brochure, "you will experience the comfort and relaxation of train travel while enjoying the beauty of white-water rivers and falls of West Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley, the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains, and the natural scenery of Virginia horse country." Sounds fantastic! Where do I sign up? The brochure also includes blurbs about the stops along the Cardinal Route and what you can expect to see at that stop. Here's the entry for New York:

NEW YORK: The Big Apple is a place unlike any other. From the lights of Broadway to the heights of Wall Street and the breathtaking Statue of Liberty to the stately Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York is full of attractions. No matter where you go or what time you go out, you'll find New York is truly "a city that never sleeps."

The original Penn Station station was a magnificent structure, designed to resemble the Baths of Caracalla in Rome. It was demolished in the 1960s to make way for Madison Square Gardens, which now stands above the current station.

And, um, here's the blurb for Maysville Kentucky:

MAYSVILLE: Locals say that at one time, Maysville had more millionaires per capita than anywhere else in the United States. It is also the home of Rosemary Clooney, once a popular singer.

LOL, I think they need a new copy researcher. That's the best they could do?
