Levittown by Margaret Lundrigan Ferrer

Book Description

When developer Abraham Levitt and his two sons conceived the idea for Levittown in 1946, they were probably unaware of the future impact of their radical concept to build cellarless, affordable tract housing on Long Island farmland. Levittownbecame the prototype suburban community that hasbeen mirrored in towns throughout America and around the world. This delightful photographic history chronicles the growth and development of Levittown as returning World War II GIs flocked to it in droves, attracted by the promise of the American Dream of becoming homeowners. Despite criticism of its stunning conformity, Levittown and its residents thrived as they raised families, started businesses, and created a close-knit community that exists to this day. This enchanting collection of photographs reveals the joys and struggles of Levittown s founders and residents as they carved their niche in American history."
