  1. East Bethesda has a cluster of state named roads— Kentucky, West Virginia, Maryland (!)— I’ve always wondered what the story behind that was.

  2. Rockville Pike changes to Wisconsin south of Naval Hospital, south of Jones Bridge and south of Woodmont

    Pike and Rose is a tacky developers’ monstrosity, but it is not a place name, Rockville Pike north of the Beltway is in Rockville
