Levittown is the definition of modern suburbia. Despite not being an official town, it’s considered a planned community, it is Philadelphia’s largest suburb. Driving through the area, you will see nice homes with well-manicured lawns along the winding lanes. “Levittowners,” as the locals are affectionately called, enjoy this idyllic location just thirty-five minutes north of Philadelphia’s city center.
Built by real estate developing company, Levitt and Sons, they began promoting their newest development in 1951, they claimed it was “the most perfectly planned community in America.” Brothers Bill and Alfred Levitt designed six types of single-family dwellings that were economical in price and could be built in a day. The community was initially targeted to blue-collar workers in Delaware Valley, however, veterans returning from World War II found the location and subsidized housing prices too good to turn down. Levittown considered incorporation in the early 1950s, but some residents were concerned that it would lead to higher taxes.
Totaling twenty-two square miles and more than seventeen thousand homes, what set Levittown apart from other developments of that era, was it a complete community. Lots had been set aside for community schools, swimming pools, and schools. The community is divided into forty-one neighborhoods that are called “sections,” and are found in parts of four municipalities: Bristol Township, Falls Township, Middletown Township and the Borough of Tullytown.
Levittown residents are served by three separate school districts dependent on which section the student resides in. Those in Middletown attend Neshaminy School District, a Blue-Ribbon award-winning district. Other sections are managed by Bristol Township and Pennsbury School Districts. Levittown has made a name for itself in Philadelphia.
