Welcome to New YTOWN, a site devoted to discussing the events and the future possibilities of the city of Youngstown, Ohio. There is already a small but vibrant list of blogs devoted to the city, and I’m excited to be joining their ranks.
Let me tell you a little bit about what we’ll be featuring on the site. We’ll feature editorials, event postings, photography, and general news pertaining to the city and the valley. The general theme of this blog is to look ahead to what the city can offer in the future, not look back at what it did in the past.
With that in mind, this site intends to be realistic. By that I mean I want to talk about the prospects of something that could succeed under the current conditions of this area, and not talk about ideas that when you look at it further, it could succeed possibly in Cleveland or Columbus, but could fall flat on its face in Youngstown.
With that said, welcome! Check back often for future postings.
