Frank Barning hasn't lived in Levittown since 1966 but still calls it home.
This is the 200th post since we started the Early Levittown blog on July 13, 2010. It has received more than 16,000 hits and has been read around the globe. Here are some encouraging comments:
Polly Dwyer, President of the Levittown Historical Society
You are keeping that time (early Levittown) alive.

Just love your blog. It is so nice to go down memory lane. I break out into a smile with each post.

I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoy and look forward to receiving your blog. You are “The Memory Keeper “of our lives.
Don Davidson, 1960
Your blog has the feeling for me of the movie "Play It Forward". The emotion it evokes, the feeling and thoughts that have been dormant for five decades.
Perry Berns 1960
Thanks for bringing us all together.
Jackie Bernstein Karp
I am so glad that I get to reminisce every day with Frank’s blog.

I love what you are doing with your blog.....you've become an archivist/librarian for a part of your past, which I think is an admirable service.
