Encyclopedia > Smoky Hollow (neighborhood)

Smoky Hollow, also nicknamed The Hollow, is a neighborhood in Youngstown, Ohio, situated east of Youngstown's Downtown. A relatively small neighborhood, it is currently being planned to be re-developed into a more modern, accessible neighborhood. Official website: http://www. ... Downtown Youngstown is the center of the city of Youngstown, and is shaping up to become the center for arts and entertainment in the Youngstown-Warren metropolitan area. ...

The Neighborhood

Smoky Hollow borders Youngstown State University, so several YSU facilities are in the Hollow. Another Hollow mainstay is the Mahoning Valley Restaurant (usually shortened to the MVR), an Italian bar and restaurant that has been operating since the late 1920s. Also located within the Hollow is the central branch for the Youngstown and Mahoning County library system, and contains more material than any other branch. There are also several homes within the neighborhood, although the population is fairly low compared to other neighborhoods. Youngstown State University, founded in 1908, is an accredited university located in Youngstown, Ohio. ...

The Re-development Plan

Aside from the afformentioned, Smoky Hollow is a fairly vacant neighborhood, and it's proximity to both a college campus and a central downtown area made it a fairly attractive area for re-development. In 2002, a non-profit group called Wick Nieghbors Inc. was established to aide in the re-development. Aiming to re-establish the area as "a regionally competitive contemporary neighborhood", the group's goal is to build the neighborhood to make it a more livable area, with plans to create housing, green space, retail, and business space in an effort to lure people and businesses to Youngstown.
