Only accessible capital?[edit]

What does this sentence mean?

Trenton is the only accessible capital city in the United States to border another state

Accessible to river navigation? If that's the claim, it's definitely not true, as there are capital cities along the Mississippi that are navigable, all the way up to St. Paul, Minnesota. Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:59, 11 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]

Ikan - could it be that it's the only capital in the U.S. that borders another state and is accessible by road from its bordering state? That statement would be true, and strikes me as possibly a reference to Carson City, which borders on Lake Tahoe and thus theoretically extends all the way to the California state line which runs down the middle of the lake, and/or Juneau, whose municipal borders include tracts of wilderness east of the developed city that go all the way to the border with British Columbia (though that's not a state). -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 23:30, 14 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
Thanks for your take on this, AndreCarrotflower. Is this a point worth clarifying? Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:17, 15 April 2016 (UTC)[reply]
