Remembering Youngstown's Uptown Area at its Height

These old videos are always interesting. This one, like the one we shared about Buckeye Road in Cleveland, shows a point in the city’s history where cultural conflict threatens a vibrant urban neighborhood. These videos are sad.

This is what Youngstown’s Uptown neighborhood looks like now, more or less.

This whole thing sort of echos what happened to Cleveland’s The Flats in the 1990s.
