The Vice Squad Podcast Episode 3: The Jungle Inn. There was once a place in Trumbull County Ohio, just outside of Youngstown city limits, called Halls Corners, which was “conceived in infamy!” according to Youngstown Police Chief Eddie Allen. Halls Corners was a tiny, unincorporated township created solely for the purpose of operating a casino called The Jungle Inn. A mob run establishment for years, The Jungle Inn was operated by twin brothers John & Mike Farah on behalf of the Cleveland crime family, until the whole operation was eventually closed by state liquor agents (by order of the Governor) on August 12, 1949.
