NY vs PA? Yes, this is sarcasm. I've never been to Levittown, PA and don't care. These town comparison threads are annoying and just the usual suspects snapping towels on each other's behinds.

I prefer Levittown. Come on, there's no comparison! What a silly thread.

Have you considered Rocky Point? it is the sacred gem of Long Island, not to mention the absolute BEST value on the north shore.

Yes, also Willingboro, NJ. Once also named Levittown, NJ. The residents changed it later.

With a little help from Wikipedia:

Levittown, Puerto Rico
Levittown, Puerto Rico, a suburb of the San Juan MSA and part of the municipality of Toa Baja, is one of the largest planned communities in Puerto Rico. It was developed by Levitt and Sons in 1963.


Bowie, Maryland
In 1957, the firm of Levitt and Sons acquired the nearby Belair Estate, the original colonial plantation of the Provincial Governor of Maryland, Samuel Ogle, and developed the residential community of Belair at Bowie. Two years later the town of Bowie annexed the Levitt properties, and then re-incorporated the now-larger area as a city in 1963. The overwhelming majority of Bowie residents today live in this 1960s Levitt planned community, whose street names are arranged in alphabetical sections.[citation needed] Levitt & Sons had a long history of prohibiting the sale of houses (including resale by owners) to African Americans which led to civil rights protests in Bowie in 1963.[9]
