    Silly Aaron. North Bethesda Market II is not in Bethesda. It barely qualifies as North Bethesda considering its Rockville zip code. Let's make sure to call it what it is: White Flint. And avoid what developers are privately pushing: North Bethesda.

    Duly noted, and amended.

    While, it's nice to see an author respond to posted comments, Eric's is wrong. North Bethesda Market IS in North Bethesda. Look on google maps, the Montgomery County website, DC Mud, the Washington Post, or (most importantly) the Census Bureau.

    Zip Codes and postal addresses mean next to nothing in defining areas. If you went by the post office, Aspen Hill (which has 60,000+ residents according to the Census Bureau) doesn't exist.

    I will say that "North Bethesda," roughly defined as the heavily populated areas centered on MD355 north of the Beltway to the Rockville city line, is being transformed into "White Flint." So the North Bethesda name might not be around in the next 20 years, but as of now it's the "official" name.
