I think a small grocer would do well in downtown. I don't think it would support a Giant Eagle or anything but a small hometown local grocer.

WarrenProud, it's ok. Keep your hind end in Warren. We don't want you in downtown any more than you want to be here. So stay in Warren where it's nice and safe and snugly.

citizenzero, The move out of town was in the 50's and 60's.

If it was a good idea don't you think Debartolo and Cafaro would have done it years ago? Anyone with a large amount of assets would have been buying those buildings up. I remeber what Pendleton tried in Warren. How did that work out? Did you join the Atrium Club? Did you rent space in the Mahoning Building?

People have been coming up with ideas for at least the last 50 years that I can remember. In 2 or 3 years they will try something else.

Downtown resurgence is a wonderful thing. It takes more involvement and commitment to take it back from the destructive forces left behind when the move was out of town in the 70's and 80's. The prices are great and the spaces large and the need is huge for those willing to go in and stake a claim and work toward taking back the cities.

If every apartment in downtown Youngstown was filled there still wouldn't be enough people to support a grocery store.

It takes more to make a place livable than bars and restaurants. Not really the kind of place to raise a family.

A person that was raised on the west side of Youngstown would not know if suburbs are boring. He would only know that residential neighborhoods in old cities are boring.

The middle class has never lived in the downtowns in this area. Even when the towns were booming those apartments were always low class. I think these people spent too much time watching Seinfeld and think all cities can be like that.

I wouldn't go into downtown Youngstown because my life depends on it. That whole city is unsafe including this so called Federal street area.
