The Manchester Room Central Branch, Youngstown YMCA

Community Revitalization Award – The Manchester Room Central Branch, Youngstown YMCA

The Manchester Room at the YMCA has been called the most beautiful room in the building. It’s Italian Renaissance design includes a special batch elder tile in many colors, a heavy beamed ceiling and a large wood burning fireplace. It was used as a member lounge from 1930-1972. In the following years the room was repurposed as a cardio center with large exercise machines.  In the overall Central YMCA renovation project, the Manchester room was restored to its original glory and is now available as a community meeting room.   The project designer was Strollo Architects.
