LC: Tell us some of your favorite things about growing up in Levittown…
Shea; Favorite thing about growing up in Levittown was the street where I grew up… we had so many kids/friends on our block & in the immediate sections that we always had something to do.. a few favorites. Swimming in the Brook Pool, man hunt, riding our bikes, going to the shopping center, walking to the old Levittown Eastern for Big League Chew bubble gum.. it was simple, but I wouldn’t change a thing, but always fun!!! My mom was great.. she always let the neighborhood hang out at our house.. we would play basketball on the driveway, listen to music as we got older. And when those street lights came on.. that was it.. we scattered until the next day!!!!! We had great neighbors. Most had been there as long as the house had been. I always felt safe.. I knew someone would be there if I needed help. I didn’t even own a house key until I moved into my own house b/c we never locked the door.. we didn’t have to!!
LC;  Thanks Shea, lastly, tell us what you like about our Levittown Comfort page…

I love this quote, yet only moments after opening presents, my OCD took over and I threw out all the wrapping paper at once, then began stacking gifts into neat little piles. After that,  I started the pile for returns.

Growing up in Levittown: Remember Gaudio’s?

If you grew up in Levittown, you remember the house in Kenwood with the living room window display at Christmas time. Growing up in Levittown, it became a family tradition for many.

We spent many Christmases stopping by to see the Kenwood House. This wasn’t your everyday holiday decorating. This house was not a drive-by. The house on Kenwood Drive was a house that demanded to be seen, up close.
