GUEST,Sonja Help: Little Boxes about Levittown? (23) RE: Help: Little Boxes about Levittown? 27 Sep 02


Folks, I'm pretty sure it was Daly City that inspired this gem of Malvina's.

As it happens, the first time I saw Daly City, driving up from the south, I looked up at the hillside and gasped, "Omigod! There are the little boxes on the hillside made of ticky-tacky!" There were little rows of boxes, pastel green, yellow, blue, pink, etc. I didn't find out until later that this was, indeed, the inspiration for that song.
