Press Coverage


When Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp. acquired the former Carmelite Monastery last year, leaders weren’t entirely sure what to do with the property near Mill Creek Park.

Workers with the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation showed off their most recent effort — one they hope to have occupied by the end of the month.

Most of the national stories about Youngstown seem to focus on the shutdown of the steel mills and the problems they left behind.

“The Place That Makes Us,” a documentary film highlighting the work and team members of Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corporation, as well as Youngstown residents, will premiere online this week.

Youngstown regularly resurfaces in film and on TV newsmagazines as the poster child for post-industrial decay and economic decline.
