HISTORIC NEIGHBORHOOD WORKS TO REBOUND – This collection of images captures many of the historic homes, churches and institutional anchors found in the Wick Park Historic District. Once home to some of Youngstown’s wealthiest families, the Wick Park neighborhood is currently experiencing renewed appreciation after decades of decline. Recent catalysts include a new neighborhood group (Wick Park Neighborhood Association), a weekly farmers market that attracts visitors to the area, and a very successful property-divestment effort by the Northside Citizens’ Coalition that has brought new residents to the district. All images by Mark Peyko, Ron Flaviano and the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County.
