From The Washington Post
According to Alana Lasover, the best thing about Old Georgetown Village, a townhouse community near Pike & Rose, the White Flint Metro station and the Capital Beltway, starts at her kitchen window. There she views the zelkova and sycamore trees, knowing that each of the four streets in the North Bethesda, Md., neighborhood has a mix of trees — dogwoods the next street over, cherry two streets north, and dogwoods and crape myrtles to the south.
It’s also the perch from which she watches the changes in the neighborhood. She sees more children playing as young families move into this wooded enclave of 198 townhouses, built in 1979 and ’80 by Richmarr Construction, as original owners move out.
Also outside her kitchen window is the driveway, which figured in her decision to buy into the neighborhood in 1982. She had been renting a townhouse three doors down, and when she was ready to buy, she eyed a house with a driveway so that her two teenage sons would have extra room to park.

Metro’s board of directors will vote Thursday on a proposal to rename the White Flint Metro station “North Bethesda.”
Montgomery County has indicated it is willing to pay $332,000 in public money for sign changes that would be needed if the name changes.
Metro’s staff is recommending to its board of directors to approve the name change. In writing why they acknowledged that currently North Bethesda does not have much of a “sense of place,” but added:
“That said, noteworthy developments such as Pike & Rose have started to adapt the namesake into their branding and identify as being located in the city of North Bethesda. We will continue to see this take hold throughout the county. Should the Board wish to approve the jurisdiction’s request, it is likely that the new name will become synonymous with the surrounding community over time and customers will find it sufficient for wayfinding.”
Friends of White Flint led the charge to change the station’s name. Fingers crossed!!
