Refurbished house sold in Powerstown neighborhood



Published: Thu, June 12, 2014 @ 2:47 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN — Like many areas in the city, the Powerstown neighborhood on the southeast side has fallen on hard times.

“Pitbulls, prostitution, drugs, guns,” Mary Krupa, treasurer of the Powerstown Block Watch, said when asked about the neighborhood. “We have some really deteriorated properties.”

But Krupa and others in the neighborhood have hope the area can be revitalized.

A key step was highlighted today with a press conference to talk about the Youngstown Neighborhood Development Corp.’s improvement and sale of a house at 3405 Lenox Ave., which was in foreclosure and in bad shape, to Nancy Ramos. The sale should close in a week or two.

Home Savings donated the house to the YNDC, which spent $20,000 to improve the three-bedroom Cape Code house and is finalizing a $25,000 sale to Ramos, who’s lived in Boardman the past seven years, for $25,000.

Ramos said she’s thrilled to move into the neighborhood.
