Sorry ya'll, just realized I lived in the "other" Levittown in PA and forgot about the Levittown in NY. Same developer, same home type, similar memories.
OK wait a minute, this thread is about the Levittown in PA not NY. It's all OK we seem to have similar memories probably because they were "mirror" communities.

fond memories.
In 1968, I was in 8th grade at Levittown Memorial High School (then moved). I had big letters written on one of my textbook cover: LMHS...Lennon, McCartney, Harrison and Starkey.
