Amazon Books will open a store at Bethesda Row - and the store will have a café inside, meaning I'll still be able to conduct my business meetings at Bethesda Row after Barnes & Noble closes in January. Amazon Books will be located where Urban Country is now (UC will move next door). #Bethesda #BethesdaRow #AmazonBooks #bookstore #books #reading #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Time to use those Barnes & Noble gift cards - the Bethesda Row store will tentatively close forever on January 11, 2018. It will be replaced by Anthropologie. #Bethesda #BethesdaRow #BarnesAndNoble #city #urban #architecture #building #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Harvey Matthews, a resident of the lost black community on River Road until 1959, stops oncoming traffic so marchers can cross River Road at Sunday's protest to save the African-American cemetery by Westwood Tower from development. Matthews' family owned the land to the left, until they were swindled off of it. Today, it is home to Whole Foods. #Bethesda #history #blackhistory #AfricanAmerican #blackcemeteries #road #street #racism #traffic #cars #WholeFoods #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Macedonia Baptist Church at 5119 River Road is the only structure remaining from a lost black community that existed there after Maryland emancipation in the 1860s. It was gone by the 1960s, when developers swindled the black homeowners out of their land. The founders were slaves freed from the Loughborough plantation, which stretched from Little Falls Parkway all the way to Nebraska Avenue, where NBC4 is today. Residents of the community built River Road, Bradley Boulevard and even the bomb shelter underneath the White House. #Bethesda #history #architecture #building #church #blackhistory #AfricanAmerican #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Be part of this historic rally in Bethesda tomorrow, Sunday, November 12 at 1:30 PM at Macedonia Baptist Church at 5119 River Road. Then march to the site of the historic African-American cemetery across the street, to protest the plan to build a parking garage on top of the graves! #Bethesda #cemetery #protest #blackhistory #blackcemeteries #history #DontParkOnMeHOC #ShutItDown #corruption #scandal #AfricanAmerican #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Dean & DeLuca Bethesda store opening delayed - - for 2 years! It won't open until 2019. See the exclusive report on my blog today (link in my bio). My story is already being plagiarized by other outlets, who didn't put in the enterprising, investigative reporting I did over the last 10 days to bring you this scoop. #Bethesda #DeanAndDeLuca #architecture #building #city #urban #CityLights #night #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland
