Grew up in Levittown

Corona, CA

#1 Jun 15, 2011
I grew up in Levittown in the 60's. I went to Abbey lane and LMHS. I have got to say it was the greatest time of my life. Can someone tell me what happened? I have been back a few times. Each time I went back it looked worst. Judging by this post alot of people agree that something is broken, but what. I can remember the community pools, the fireman parades and alot other great things and memories.

P.S. Oh, and the various Village Greens are mainly still there,
but most are not as good now, disappearing shopping,
crud shopping, or are just lacking in solid amenities unlike
years ago. For example, the Green and pool and bowling
center that used to be at Wolcott Lane (north of
Hempstead Tpke.) is now just like,
a medical center, offices, child care, and the pool, bowling
is closed, and it looks grim and bleak over there these days.
You can't even get a soda, candy, a sandwich, NOTHING
there nowadays. I found that VERY depressing.
They also shut down the famous YOM Youth and Community
Center a few years ago on Center Lane. ALL BAD BAD SIGNS
of a community starting to decay, and fast.
