Is this a postapocalyptic movie set?
No, it's the last chapter of White Flint Mall, in Bethesda, Maryland. These are the abandoned stores, corridors, and escalators of a thriving mall intentionally driven over the cliff by its ownership.
Empty spaces that represent many dozen lost jobs and dashed dreams in the Montgomery County we're told is "open for business."
And, as I mentioned yesterday, a perfectly good structure being demolished for the uncertain promise of bigger developer profits tomorrow. Greed is good.
"Enjoy" this photo tour of the dark side of the White Flint sector plan you don't hear about much from the local press.
