Lot 13 construction site in the Wheaton Triangle. A second tower crane will be erected this weekend. Your favorite small businesses (in background) are still OPEN during the construction, and need your support to survive this disruption! #Wheaton #WheatonMD #SilverSpring #Glenmont #AspenHill #construction #constructionsite #excavation #towercrane #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

R Family Kitchen & Bar is now open at 4901-A Fairmont Avenue in downtown Bethesda. The menu still has pho, a holdover from this week's Pho Pop-Up. But the new fusion concept mixes dishes from America, Venezuela, Argentina, Europe and the Mediterranean. See my blog today (link in my bio) for full details. Swipe left for dinner menu. #Bethesda #dining #restaurant #MoCo #DC #MD #

Another scene from the decline and fall of "Montgomery County's Rodeo Drive" in Chevy Chase. DePandi is sporting the "Store Closing - Everything must go!" signs that are increasingly ubiquitous in shop windows around the County. Thanks, County Council! #ThrowTheBumsOut #HeckuvaJob #ChevyChase #FriendshipHeights #retail #business #economicdevelopment #jobs #Bethesda #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

"Montgomery County's Rodeo Drive" is looking more like Skid Row these days, with shuttered storefronts and smashed-out bus shelters. Stay classy, Montgomery County! #ChevyChase #FriendshipHeights #WisconsinAvenue #Bethesda #busshelter #busstop #transit #ThrowTheBumsOut #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Ralph Lauren is the latest closure along what used to be called "Montgomery County's Rodeo Drive," at the Collection at Chevy Chase on Wisconsin Avenue. As wealthy residents have fled to lower tax jurisdictions around us, these high-end shops have closed one by one. #Bethesda #ChevyChase #FriendshipHeights #RalphLauren #fashion #shopping #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

Demolition of the Apex Building in downtown Bethesda. Many people don't realize that Wisconsin Avenue is actually just a bridge at this spot. As the building is torn away, the view is returning to what it was when I used to look off this bridge as a child. #Bethesda #ApexBuilding #demolition #city #urban #architecture #building #CityLights #night #street #road #cars #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland

An older gentleman desperately tugs at the front door of Barnes & Noble, not realizing it had closed forever the night before. Window screens, an appropriately funereal black, have been put up in the first floor windows. #Bethesda #BethesdaRow #BarnesAndNoble #bookstore #books #reading #nostalgia #sad #architecture #building #city #urban #CityLights #night #MoCo #DC #MD #Maryland
