A city in northwestern Ohio, the seat of Mahoning County.

Youngstown (CL-94) - a Cleveland-class light cruiser - was laid down on 4 September 1944 at Philadelphia, Pa., by the Cramp Shipbuilding Co,; but because of the end of hostilities in the Pacific, the contract for her construction was canceled on 12 August 1945, when the ship had been 54.1 percent completed. On 21 January 1946, the Navy approved cancellation of the contract and disposition of the ship, and the unfinished ship was subsequently scrapped on the ways.
