This historical documentary chronicles New York real estate developer William Levitt's post-war construction of affordable housing for returning World War II veterans and their families in Levittown and other Long Island communities, thereby establishing the prototype for modern suburbia. Tracing the period from 1947 to the present day, the video explores Levitt's vision of rapidly constructing inexpensive tract homes on 60' x 100' lots, featuring rare archival footage and photos, an interview with Levitt and the reminiscences of numerous Levittown residents. The video shows how the federal government, banks and builders like Levitt cooperated in the early postwar years to finance and build affordable housing, reveals how a policy of racial discrimination prevented blacks from buying the homes, and traces the subsequent collapse of Levitt's construction empire
