On the Mahoning River, 58 miles (93 kilometres) southeast of Cleveland and 61 miles (100 kilometres) northwest of Pittsburgh is where you'll find Youngstown. In addition to having its own media market, Youngstown is also a part of the broader Northeast Ohio area. This region encompasses the whole state of Ohio. Interstate 80 passes through Youngstown, which places it near the exact centre of the route between Chicago and New York City.

John Young, an early pioneer originally from Whitestown, New York, who erected the first sawmill and gristmill in the settlement, is honoured with the naming of the city. Despite being located less than 640 kilometres (400 miles) from the coast, the city of Youngstown is considered to be in the Midwest. It was an early industrial city throughout the late 19th and early 20th centuries; but, due to the reorganisation of heavy industry and the relocation of employment elsewhere, it is now considered to be a part of the Rust Belt. Youngstown, which has historically been renowned as a hub of steel manufacturing, has been forced to adapt as the steel industry in the United States went into decline in the 1970s, leaving villages around the area without any main industry. Since the year 1959, there has been a drop in population of more than sixty percent. In the Appalachian Ohio area, at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, is where you'll find the city of Youngstown.

Since 2010, a lot of significant changes have taken place in Downtown Youngstown. It has developed into a hub for culture, entertainment, and innovation in recent years. It is presently home to a variety of drinking establishments, dining establishments, and the newly finished Youngstown Foundation Amphitheater. The historic Stambaugh Building in downtown Youngstown was converted into the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in 2018, making it Youngstown's first brand-new downtown hotel since 1974. On the commercial area of the building's first level is a restaurant. Downtown Youngstown is home to the headquarters of a number of different companies, including one that specialises in educational technology and is called Turning Technologies.
