I like Youngstown. That being said, this article seems to be written with a specifically optimistic viewpoint which probably has some involvement in the revitalization agenda of the downtown area. Whether or not the article's name should be corrected to specify which Youngstown; whether this should be part of the Youngstown, Ohio article; the history of the downtown area which was very much a bustling center of the Steel Valley; these matters I will leave to future discussion.

Language such as "rise from the ashes", "shaping up to become the prime" district, "becoming an arts and entertainment center"; this is wishful thinking and probably not very accurate. Such language should be tempered. It is more appropriate for a brochure promoting the downtown area, not a Wikipedia article.--SidP 15:38, 6 June 2007 (UTC)

I agree. This article has serious neutrality problems. There also is no reason for it to be separate from the Youngstown, Ohio entry. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:00, 9 September 2007 (UTC)
