Westwood is the city's largest neighborhood in terms of its geographical size, and it's the most heavily populated at 30,000 residents. At one point, it was a crossroads for commerce moving in and out of the city, a place where many large and fashionable homes were built. But, with changes in the city's zoning code in the 1970's and older generations dying off and younger generations moving out, Westwood has seen blight move in.

Polk Laffoon IV joins Mark Perzel to discuss his big idea about looking at what makes Cincinnati a great city for a series in Cincinnati Magazine. It began with the river, then the hills, and wraps up in the August issue with a look at the city's great buildings.
