Another casualty of suburban sprawl, unfortunately. The traffic in Boardman and Austintown is so heavy it takes forever to get anywhere. Well-done photo that tells a story, Pamela! #1316276

Sad to see this all too common scene. You really caught the feeling of abandonment perfectly. Unfortunately this scene is repeated all over the country with empty buildings and homes everywhere... #8960223

Shot this on the Northside of Youngstown, Ohio. The much talked about revitalization, of the immediate downtown area, has apparently failed to spread to other areas of the city.
