Park Forest: Planning for the American Dream

Plot/Description: 
The suburban myth has largely been defined by Levittown, but before there was a Levittown, there was Park Forest, Illininos-- a planned community that emphasized the utopian elements of the American dream and created a unique breed of suburban activist. Park Forest was the subject of Willam H. Whyte's seminal study of America in the 1950's and 1960's entitled "The Organization Man." On the occasion of Park Forest's 50th anniversary, we profile this landmark American village.
