I have loved Youngstown. The cost of living is amazing, and so are the people. It is an area that has been depressed for quite some time, but it is being revitalized. There continues to be more and more entertainment and dining options that really fuel a higher quality of life. Youngstown is a unique place full of down to earth people who hold a certain connection with each other by being from the area. This is shown throughout the community, and fosters the revitalization that is taking over the city. I love this place, and I'm proud to call it home!

I have grown up living 20 minutes North of the city. I have seen the city grow immensely in the past 22 years. Youngstown State University, alone, has made tremendous progress. When I have friends visit from out of town, I take them to Avalon Pizza!
I live in a suburb of Youngstown. It is beautiful, affordable, family oriented, safe. The schools are excellent. There are people of all ages in this area. It has been, and always will be a comfortable place that I call home. We are not far from Youngstown State University, which is a wonderful university. It is just the right size. The professors are fantastic. I worked at the University in the Football Office. This is when we were winning Division titles. It was so much fun. Everyone was a family of their own at Youngstown State University. There are different opportunities in this area. You can live and work in different cities because everywhere is small and quaint, and not far from each other.
