All you have to do is take a ride though Bloomsdale to see where Levittown is going...
Get out while you can and will still be able to get a "decent" amount for your property...
We are out of hereĀ…
We are leaving also but if you look around most places langhorne, lower southampton, richboro, holland, they all have some people like this or worst and if the taxes keep going up at the rate they are in neshaminy, bristol and they get approved for a 1% earned income tax northampton will be the place to move since their taxes on older home are less than lower southampton.

There definitely is a prevailing toothless, tatoo ridden, uneducated white-trash under-class residing in Levittown, PA who doesn't have much of a clue as to how much they trash up the persona of the area. It's these very pigs who are the most thoughless and intusive of nuisances to their neighbors who are civilized by blaring their sickening loud music from their front yards and never shutting up their barking dogs or controlling their unruly stinking delinguent brat kids who will likely grow up to be trashier, less educated pigs than their parents are. It doesn't surprise me that you met some women (let me guess, probably Gothic biker chicks) who had never been to Philly or New York. That's so sad. It's sad what Levittown has become where these kind of resident pigs are the majority. I yearn for the nastalgia of the Levittown of yester-year, the 1950s when the majority were civilized, white-trash was the minority, everybody knew one another, kids were more respectful and neighbors were more thoughful and respectful of eachothers existence and property. Times have incredibly changed and it's scary to contemplate what Levittown will look like in 50 more years.
Sooo true!! Geez, you really got to the point!
Ever recall the special edition of The Philadelphia Inquirer on "Levittown 50th Anniversary"- the photographs and captions were laughably real and honest! Gotta love that obese, shirtless Dad with the whale belly mowing the lawn with his chunky son and the giddy scene at the tattoo parlor! See those characters all over the place...
Very embarrassing for us minority because our upgraded homes, dignified lifestyle and high integrity weren't represented at all!
Where's that moving van..counting the days...:)

The Kilgallon broad's a fake and a spoiled b-tch who obviosly got way in over her head money and time-wise with trying to improving that house herself and blamed it on the termites. The show should be damned for being gullible. It's a poorly staged, so-called reality show. It's pathetic! I can't believe this b-tch got her mortgage paid off too by the Middletown Community Foundation. She should be ashamed to live amongst the honest, hardworking and descent people she lives near on that street - what a dead-beat.

She beat the system and got a freeby. Give it up for the efort. How many woman are giving head for $5 a pop in philly and not receiving $4,000 a month in alimony. Let's not pretend this is more than it is. The hoe hit the lottery. Everyone feels sorry for a woman in life. The whole concept of the theme bedrooms os odd. The 13 year old by better remodel that room if he ever wants to lose his virginity in there.

I moved away from Levittown and was in the area last week. I met the man Chris, who was looking for his missing dog for quite some time. My friend told me there was an article about this dog, probably Monday. Does anyone know where I can read this article. Was it Monday? Thanks so much! PS. Not everyone in Levittown is undereducated and white trash.

I know the ex husband personally and can say that his ex wife did nothing but lie. She was out all night wiht her gal pals at the bars. She didn't want to be married.

I hear now that she has to sell the house because she lied on the application. They are making her pay it all back.

Not everyone in Levittown is undereducated and white trash. I agree. Trevose, Langhorne, Morrisville, Bensalem, etc. They all have their mix of not ready for prime time redneck players. The problem is stupid rednecks. You have the upstate rednecks that move in and then you have the Philly people. The upstate rednecks are unsophisticated rednecks without the cowboy hat. The Philly people are the obnoxious, blunt, whats it to you charactors you move away from Philly to avoid. They interbreed and you end up with stupid, cocky, annoying, blunt, obnoxious rednecks that like to hunt and all have either Jeff Gordon or Dale earnhearts number plaster on the side of their car or license plate. I'am waiting for a giant number 23 to be attached to some of these peoples homes. They smoke no frills cigarettes and any beer they can get their paws on. The woman either cut hair or work as cashiers. The men are landscapers, carpenters, or air condition and refrigeration workers. Motorcyles are big and riding without a helmet is encouraged. Every redneck also has a trailor outside their home and some sort of crappy boat as a status symbol. Does matter if the boat works, they can say they have one. The more blunt objects accumulated on the front lawn, the better. It's sort of the rednecks booty. The rednecks also like to have cars parked in their driveway that don't run,(sometimes covered) so they can brag they have alot of cars and act like bigshots on .25 cent wing night.

The redneck also like to smoke weed and do cocaine. They buy the drugs off a friend (or someone that does the I-95/Kensington run)and pinch the bag and resell it on down the line until the final guy ends up spending $12 for joint he is jones-ing for. They resell the weed after pinching from the bag like old woman regifting a fruitcake at Christmas.
