Westwood definitely has its historical glamour and modern draw. Moreover, price for homes is so affordable that American dream is no longer something you have to struggle for. It is right there available just with normal effort.
I have been in Westwood as of 2016, and witnessed the great changes of this traditional neighborhood. Of course, drug activity is truly a concern and an issue. Families with young children should give a second thought before settling here.

I like that the neighborhood I live in is fairly clean and close to a lot of things to do. That being said, the construction on the roads is terrible and so are the condition of the roads. I moved here August of last year and the construction seems to be no closer to be completed as it was a year ago. Another problem I have encountered is that car alarms are going off constantly and it isn't due to people breaking in. It's simply the owners getting into their cars. It's almost as if they didn't realize that they are living in close proximity to people who are trying to sleep at 11:00 at night.
Thriving and growing Town Hall district includes a new brewery, coffee shop, and niche markets for antiques / furnishings, pet needs, yoga, and more. An active town council engages the public in important conversations about growth and community, and sponsors monthly summer events that bring live music, fun events, and great food to Westwood.
