I don't really have any comments about Bears Den Road, except that it's on the west side, and the west side--generally--remains the most stable part of the city.

I guess it's 2-3 miles away from YSU.

I like Bears Den. It has an almost suburban feel to it because it's so close to Mill Creek Park and there are trees all along the street. I used to drive on Bears Den all the time on my way to the Par 3 golf course in the park.

As JR_C said the west side is the most stable side of the city. Not the best area if you have kids in school though. Youngstown public schools are horrible. You'll either have to shell out for one of the Catholic schools, or maybe send them to Austintown. I'm pretty sure Austintown has open enrollment. It's the suburb immediately west of the city.

It's around 10 minutes away from YSU.

I did a little snooping through your other posts, and see that you're Sheena12's husband. Sorry to hear about your troubles, as my aunt would say.

I assume you've seen the thread your wife started about Salem, Oh. In that thread, she said she doesn't think she would be interested in "urban pioneering." So, the reason I'm bringing that up, is because there is no way you could consider yourselves urban pioneers if you moved to a neighborhood near Bears Den Road.

Yes I am her husband and thanks for the wishes. The urban pioneer days are over, but we liked the idea,
perhaps not the reality. We checked out Bears Den on googlemaps and really liked the area.

Uht oh... I'm gonna go out on a ledge and guess that you're interested in the brick home that was recently listed on Bears Den? lol. I saw that one while browsing through the listings yesterday.

Bears Den is a pretty decent location, I lived near there for a short while a few years ago. Oddly enough, I bought a home on Canfield Rd after living in Salem! Honestly, aside from the drive to Austintown from Salem, I regretted the move... even when considering how close Mill Creek Park was. Nothing bad really happened, I think I just enjoyed the small town feel of Salem more. One thing I really disliked was driving into Boardman to go shopping. I absolutely dreaded it. The traffic out there is nuts!

TheYO is spot on in regards to it feeling suburbanish.
