Levittown is a neighborhood within the Town of Hempstead on Long Island, New York. As of the 2010 census, Levittown had a population of approximately 52,000 residents. Levittown founded by Abraham Levitt in 1929, and was built by the firm of Levitt & Sons, Inc. between the years of 1947 and 1951. Levittown was the first mass-produced suburb in the country and is regarded as the original example for suburbs that were built throughout the United States following World War II. There were four Levittowns built as planned communities (New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Puerto Rico), but the town in New York was the first one to be completed. Levittown quickly became a symbol of postwar America since it was one of the largest mass-produced suburbs of the time. Levittown is a huge part of American history and culture, making it a historical and noteworthy place to call home.
