After World War II, Levittown, Long Island was the suburban dream. What began as a modest planned community, over time evolved into a suburb with four hundred thousand dollar homes. But with a struggling economy and high unemployment, homeowners struggle to make their mortgage payments. Here, we follow a group of Long Island residents as they describe the effect that their long time unemployed status has had on their American dream.
