A unpleasant situation involving a next door neighbor has convinced a West Mt. Pleasant Avenue couple to move out of their home.
This Newsworks article says Merrill Hilf, who has previously sent videos to Patch documenting traffic on West Mt. Pleasant Avenue, and her partner will move after she said they've been dealing with all manners of verbal abuse while they've been living on the street's 500 block.
West Mt. Airy Neighbors (WMAN) has attempted to deal with the situation, but to Hilf and her partner, it has become untenable.
From a May Patch article on the subject:
Anti-gay slurs have been used, according to board members.
WMAN Quality of Life Committee Chair Dan Rhoton said people walking by the house there in strollers have also been accosted.
When neighbors have attempted to shovel the snow in front of the nuisance neighbor's property, the neighbor has yelled at them, telling them to stop getting rid of the snow.
A second neighbor who lives nearby has also been subjected to abuse, according to board members, as she takes care of her 95-year old mother (who lives with her).
"None of us would want to live next to this person," Quality of Life Committee member Marilyn Lambert said.
A man who answered the door at the home in question told Newsworks the allegations are untrue. To read the full article, click here.
