    I live in this apartment complex (Off Broadway Apartments, formally known as American Seating Apartments) — filled with mostly students from surrounding colleges and universities. They are under new management under a large corporation as of last year and have gotten rid of security. I have asked multiple times for them to bring back security as this place needs it badly to control the drunk college students as well as protect them from scum such as this guy. PLEASE help me by contacting them and telling them they NEED to reinstate security – Off Broadway Apartments – 616-776-2678
