I just stumbled across this page randomly, but it appears to be a real labor of love by someone. I think it deserves some more attention. With a little work it could be a truly great page! I've requested assessment by Wikipedia:WikiProject_Virginia. Let's see what happens! Sjb0926 (talk) 14:13, 12 September 2009 (UTC) November 29, 2010: I addressed the criticism that the article is outdated by adding a sentence indicating that the advocates of an above-ground system prevailed over those who wanted full tunneling. I also noted that there will be a short tunnel under the highest point at the 7-123 intersection. As of this writing, construction of the line is well underway, with the tunnel "breaking through" (the two ends joining underground) earlier this month. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 21:42, 29 November 2010 (UTC)
The article currently makes this statement: "Every weekday, Tysons Corner draws 55,000 shoppers from around the region. In comparison, Washington, D.C. draws 15 million visitors annually, or the equivalent of 62,500 per weekday." I don't think this is actually a valid comparison. The number of people who come from around the area to shop at Tyson's is different from the number of people who come from outside the region to visit as tourists. Over 400,000 people come into the District every day, but they're not counted as "tourists". If there isn't any objection, I'm going to remove what I believe to be a false comparison. Best, epicAdam(talk)16:41, 6 November 2009 (UTC) There are also plenty of shoppers who are also tourists. I've heard plenty of stories about how Saudi Royalty have rented entire floors of the Ritz-Carlton while on shopping missions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:58, 9 January 2010 (UTC)
Tysons as an urban center is older than 30 years, which makes classifying it as an edge city WP:OR Tedickey (talk) 12:04, 1 May 2010 (UTC) 1. Interestingly enough, Tysons is listed at the Edge city page, and edge city is listed in the sentence above with a source. Perhaps "commercial area" might best describe Tysons in a more clear way. --Fiftytwo thirty (talk) 13:56, 1 May 2010 (UTC) 1. 1.1. Something like that. Describing Tysons as an edge city is like continuing to refer to someone as a "boy wonder" when he's in his mid-thirties Tedickey (talk) 14:11, 1 May 2010 (UTC) I think it is an edge city, for at least one reason: Tysons Corner is figured very prominently in the book Edge City by Joel Garreau, who either coined the term or at least is most responsible for the term coming into popular use. Look at the two 2-page illustrations that introduce his book. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 17:58, 4 June 2010 (UTC) 1. Page numbers? 2. You can say XX author...
I am attempting to edit the wikipedia page (and creating a redirect all together) as the new term for "Tysons Corner" should be "Tysons" also known as "Tysons Corner" and not the other way around. This is being promoted by both Fairfax County, USPS, and the Tysons Partnership which acts an amalgam of land owners in Tysons. It is also the common nomenclature of Northern Virginia to refer to the area as Tysons, and the mall as Tysons Corner or Tysons Corner Center. Also it would be good if the title heading itself could change to Tysons, Virginia and have the Tysons Corner, Virginia redirect accordingly.TysonsVA (talk) 21:17, 3 April 2015 (UTC) 1. The relevant guideline here is WP:COMMONNAME, and although the area is marketed as simply "Tysons", local media outlets (WaPo, Washingtonian, network affiliates, WTOP) all refer to the area as "Tysons Corner". And a name that's more commonly used by sources are preferred over "official" ones, especially since Tysons is a CDP and not an actua...
I don't normally work articles for places but does the U.S. Census Bureau changing the name of a place denote a change in article name? See here.--NortyNort (Holla)19:21, 10 November 2015 (UTC) 1. The U.S. Census Bureau has names for CDPs which may/may not relate to how organizations name themselves. Terming it as "officially renaming" misleads the reader (and the existing source for this was more than adequate). TEDickey (talk) 01:36, 11 November 2015 (UTC) The CDP name for Tysons changed last year. source1 source2 It seems to be time to finally move the article over to Tysons, Virginia. --StuffOfInterest (talk) 10:57, 5 May 2017 (UTC)
