Levittown, Volume II by Margaret Lundrigan Ferrer

Book Description

Levittown, the prototype for suburban housing development in America, emerged from the hands of legendary builders Abraham, William, and Alfred Levitt in 1947, in response to the housing dilemmas faced by veterans returning home after World War II. Skeptics predicted that the community would deteriorate, but Levittown soon became the model for housing developments throughout the nation. Its strategically planned neighborhoods were reproduced overseas as well, including cities in Germany, France, Spain, and Israel. Through more than 200 vintage photographs combined with a thoroughly researched text, Levittown Volume II illuminates the evolution of this close-knit community and invites readers to meet the families that contributed to its growth. This second volume of Levittown images takes us a step beyond the pre-Levitt history presented in Levittown: The First 50 Years and further explores the town's progress to date.
