This early 1947 picture is of what was known as Island Trees. The name was soon changed to LEVITTOWN, Long Island.
What you see is mostly potato fields. According to Lynne Matarrese in "The History of Levittown, New York", "On October 1, 1947, the first 300 families moved into the Cape Cod rental units." The monthly rent was $60 and all houses were rentals. Matarrese writes that after one year the Capes were available for sale at $7,500.
