I’ve been back and living in Westwood for over two years now and I’ve said here before and also in CityBeat’s Living Out Loud column how I love the neighborhood and the diversity here.
And Westwood is a proud community. That’s why residents won’t put up with a slumlord.
Three years ago, Abe Messer purchased three apartment buildings in Westwood. Since that purchase and around those three apartment buildings, crime has increased as well as litter. One resident has even had her life threatened. Basically Messer isn’t paying any attention or taking care of his property.
Recently, some Westwood residents paid a visit to Mr. Messer’s rather expensive home in Symmes Township to let him know they don’t appreciate what he’s doing to the community of Westwood.
Here in Westwood, residents appreciate real landlords—not the likes of Abe Messer.
