Levittown Sign in Puerto Rico

Original caption: New Levittown for Puerto Rico. San Juan, Puerto Rico: Exhibit houses are set off by palmy lawns and a children's playground in Levittown de Puerto Rico, new ocean-front residential community located just west of metropolitan San Juan. The houses were dedicated, September 5, in ceremonies led by Puerto Rican governor Luis Munos Marin. Initially planned for 3,500 families, it is the most complete large community to be built under the Commonwealth's pioneering "Guidelines" program for the planned urbanization of San Juan. Levitt and Sons, Inc., builders of the three other Levittowns (in New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey), showed furnished models of the single-family homes, which are designed for occupancy by middle-income families and range in price from $9,500 for a one-story attached house to $15,000 for a two-story detached home.
