LEVITTOWN TODAY

Many of the Levitt houses have changed
their structures over the years.
All have been modified.

Levitt's Levittown has gone through many changes. The affordable housing for our returning GI's for approximately $7900 is now valued over $350,000 today.  For the original owners it was not a bad investment.

Some are surprised to find out that Levittown is still the suburbs and never turned into a ghetto.

Property values have increased dramatically over the years and it is very rare for a homeowner not to be able to sell their home.  With an excellent school system, low taxes, low crime, easy access roadways, and public transportation makes it easy for people to get to where they need to go.  Levittown is William Levitt's dream come true.

Today almost every house in Levittown is different. In 1990, Levittown's population was 53,286. Billy Joel lived in a Levitt house in Hicksville, his block bordered Levittown. He eventually wrote a song called "Levittown", but later he re-wrote the song and called it "Allentown."

The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, is still waiting for There is one Levittowner who still lives in a  rare unmodified Levitt home.  The Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. wish for them to donate their house to the museum.
