Deadwood City
 n.— «It is also hard to picture Mount Carmel. Some of the bungalows and gardens on Elwood are cute enough for Carmel-by-the-Sea, but the nearest mount is a long way west. The name comes from Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church, which holds down the corner of Fulton Street and James Avenue. On the south side of James, Chevys and El Caminos are parked in weedy front yards—a symbol of deep “Deadwood” City.» —“Redwood City’s Secret” by Sam Whiting San Francisco Chronicle June 27, 2004.
