READ MORE The Levittowns in PA and NY were the start of suburban America. The construction of Levittown, PA began in 1952 using a unique assembly line method, whereby workers moved from house to house, each worker performing one task such as framing, installing one type of applicance, etc. Only six models of house were built, and the production rate was one house every 16 minutes. When construction was complete in 1958, 17,311 homes were completed. Unique among other developments in its time, it was a complete community with land set aside for churches, schools, parks, playgrounds, and a shopping center. There were also strict rules on maintenance and appearance of the homes.
Today, Levittown is the largest suburb of Philadelphia, with 52,983 residents as of the 2010 census. Many of the basic homes have been expanded and improved. Today's Levittown is spread through four municipalities: Bristol, Falls, and Middletown Township and the Borough of Tullytown.
