These are some great photos, and this is a great thread. I especially liked the Mill Creek photos around page 6!! And it of course makes it all the more difficult to accept that there's "a new radioactive waste facility in the heart of Youngstown" that has been approved. The Pennsylvania company has to get rid of the toxic waste here because they don't want it in PA. More risk for Ohio.

COLUMBUS – A week after the dumping of at least 20,000 gallons of toxic and potentially radioactive fracking waste into the Mahoning River by Hard Rock Excavating, state regulators have yet to disclose information about the quantity of waste and the chemicals involved.

We are still enjoying the NE Ohio area. Since writing this, we now live in Warren and we love our house and neighborhood. We have been restoring our home and it's been a lot of work, but rewarding.

We still like Y'town much better than we did Scranton-Wilkes-Barre. Those places have literally no redeeming value. They are continuing to decline. There is also nothing to do there.
But avoid crime. If you call that a hobby.

We enjoy visiting Youngstown about once or twice a month. We love the Butler Museum, dining, and shopping in a few funky retro type stores and Mill Creek Park.
In the Spring through early Fall there are some great ethic street festivals in Y'Town. We are there for frequently in the Summer months.

My son enjoyed YSU for two years. He loved his department and made some wonderful friends while living in the dorm. His transfer has nothing to do with Y'town as a city, but with the liberal arts component of his major. He feels that he is not being challenged and that the classes are lackluster.

He is more than pleased with the art department, though, and he will miss his professors at his new school.
