Fifth Avenue is referred to as the crown jewel neighborhood of Youngstown.
The area was home to some of the most influential families of Youngstown's
glorious past - captains of industry and retail.
Today, the neighborhood is home to a diverse mix of professionals,
scholars, independent business owners and retirees. The majority of
homeowners have lived in the neighborhood for many, many years. Stores,
banks, healthcare and medical facilities are within a 10 minute walk of the
neighborhood. Other city assets such as
Youngstown State University,
The Butler Institute of

Colonial Revival – just another house on the block.
Situated within the
Crandall Park – Fifth Avenue Historic District, these homes were built
between 1913 and 1940 in an era which has become known as Youngstown's
Golden Age. Known for their ample size and set on spacious, landscaped lots
to reflect the wealth and prosperity of the time, the high quality brick and
stone homes were and still are marvels to look at and are rarely duplicated
in today's era. Most of the 52 single-family homes are in the architecture
styles of English Revival, Colonial Revival, Dutch Colonial Revival, Spanish
Colonial Revival, Craftsman, Chateauesque or Norman.

"Youngstown is a small town that offers the amenities of a big city,
without the hustle and bustle. With the numerous restaurants, cultural
institutions, shopping plazas, recreational areas, and entertainment venues,
there's always something to do; an ideal location conveniently accessible to
airports and highways. Our neighbors are friendly, kind and helpful; all
which made our transition to the area a pleasant experience. We are proud to
call Youngstown our new hometown."

NOTE: A number of surrounding communities have open enrollment in their
school district. These communities offer private school options, as well.
This option is a consideration while living in the City of Youngstown
because there is virtually no traffic congestion in the region.
Some schools on this list might offer curriculum for children with special
needs. Nevertheless, additional schools do exist in the City and surrounding
communities that specialize in providing such services.
