Willingboro, New Jersey is a residential community initially purchased and subdivided by Levitt and Sons for plans of property tax profit, following previous incantations of Levittown in New York and Pennsylvannia. By 1956, Levitt had acquired 90% of the Township and developed Willingboro in idealistic planned suburbia. This photo shows the continuation of growth after Levitt took leave when the area was no longer profitable, in 1963.
