oh please, also being from levittown, i will admit things sure changed in the 80's. levittown was the rental capitol of long island and many welfare families were moving in.
even today when i drive thru or visit friends, just drive down any block you have a green house, a blue house, a house with plastic over the windows, another with cars on the side of the houses etc. i'm embarassed to drive down the blocks in case someone see's me. i don't know what part of levittown you live in, but i grew up off of wantagh ave, and it was a nice area then, not so nice now.

I always thought the armpit of the country was New Jersey.

Please Franklin Square???
You should talk about White trash!!
I knew that the "White Trash" comments were sure to come! Why is it that any town that is not on the North Shore is looked down on? There is nothing wrong with working honest jobs for honest pay. Do your homework first, Levittown has very little crime and school numbers are always decent. I have never lived in Levittown, as a matter of fact I live in one of those North Shore towns, and I think its sad that the only way people make themselves feel better is to call others "trash". Funny, it always comes from someone in a town with a comparable income level and school district ie Franklin Squares comments.

My grandparents moved from Brooklyn to Levittown in 1947. My father, aunts and uncle grew up in the house that I eventually grew up in. Although I now live in Omaha, Nebraska, Levittown is in my soul.

God bless all the Grand Marshalls of the Levittown 60th birthday parade. You were truly the pioneers of the suburban lifesyle we all cherish.

It's so funny... no matter what story there is in Newsday - even an up-beat story about a town that provided clean, low cost housing for post-WWII families - there are people ready in the wings to pound with derogatory remarks...

This is why there is so much anger, misery, and hatred here on Long Island. I just moved back after having been away for 10 years, and the hatred and misery in people'e lives here is so apparent... on these boards and, especially, on the roads. What a shame these people have such unhappy, empty lives.

NOBODY in any community on LI leaves their front door or windows open all of the hours of the night unless your running a "certain" kind of business and especiallly in levittown, don't kid yourself.

Is there any other purpose to these comments except letting insecure people voice their insecurity behind a veil of anonymity?
