There are approximately 450 homes in the Crandall Park North neighborhood,
designed by architects with individual details that set their appearance
apart from most others in the city. Many of the houses are brick and two
stories, although the Cape Cod style with its one-and-a-half stories are
also popular. There are many colonial revival and bungalow designs, and
Madera Avenue has a number of Tudor revivals with leaded casement windows.
Most of the other homes feature double-hung windows, many with leaded glass,
as well as full front porches. The largest of the homes are immediately
adjacent to Crandall Park, within a historic district, on Tod Lane and
Guadalupe Avenue. Two car garages accompany a majority of the homes, and
porte cocheres are in evidence occasionally. The neighborhood predominantly
consists of single family homes, although the option of multi-family and
apartment living also exists. The typical single family home in the
neighborhood rests on a 50 x 150 lot.

"After living out-of-state for eight years and most recently in Trumbull
County for five, I’ve found my home in Youngstown’s Crandall Park North
neighborhood. I am consistently pleased by my quiet, tree-lined street. My
neighbors are always ready with a smile and wave as they walk their dogs,
and the New York Times is delivered to my doorstep!"
Heather McMahon, Crandall Park North
"The beautiful architecture, affordable homes, and proximity to retail,
park, and cultural amenities made my decision to choose this neighborhood as
my home. My family and I can walk to YSU football games, a variety of stores,
the North Side Pool, and three playgrounds. It's only a 15 minute bicycle ride to Downtown
and most of Liberty's Belmont Avenue shopping corridor is safely accessible
via bike over residential streets. Three daytime and one nighttime bus
routes also serve the neighborhood. Living in Crandall Park North, you can
enjoy a comfortable life and reduce your carbon footprint at the same time!"

- Akiva Academy:
Grades K–6; Accredited school for students of all races and religions.
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.
