Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday to you!
Happy birthday dear modern suburbia!
Happy birthday to you!

Some articles on Levittown at 50:

Mind you, it is just a Levittown and not the Levittown, but the articles are not about nostalgia, so I forgive them and the hype. On the other hand, unlike the original, this one was made up up houses much more in line with what we think of as classic American suburbia.

I live just a few blocks from a small enclave of original-style Levittown houses, many still in their original tiny boxy form. Maybe I should go snap some picture in celebration.
