What strikes you about the home described in the ad? After reading this ad by Chan in in the New York Times, a lot of the things they described in this house almost seemed too good to be true for a lot of Americans just coming out of a depression. A part of the ad that really stood out to me was the Hotpoint all-electric kitchen. The kitchen included a refrigerator, range, dishwasher, ventilating fan and washing machine, which are all included in the purchase price of $14, 790. Another thing about this ad that stood out to me was the way they designed the house. It includes some very luxurious and desirable attributes like a friendly entrance vestibule with guest closet, picture windows, front and rear, Venetian binds, china closet with service bar between dining room and kitchen, combination linen closet and laundry hamper, color-harmonized bath with vanitory, medicine cabinet, etc.
These attributes including the 6, 000-square foot landscaped plot all show this “suburban explosion” after World War II and the Cold War. It is just amazing to me to see that after experiencing want during the depression and then rationing and shortages during the prosperous war years, Americans went on postwar buying sprees like looking into buying a home like this. How does the ad try to sell the house? The ad tries to sell the house by describing how comfortable it would be to live in it, how easy it would be to keep, and how appealing it would be to your friends. They also describe the closet space, the color-harmonized bath and vanitory, how well it was built, how warm it would be during the winter, the kitchen, and the location. For veterans, the house seems even more appealing by paying nothing down because their 30-year mortgages bear 4 percent interest. What appears to be the relationship between the Green Acres development in Valley Stream, Long Island, and New York City, at least as of 1950? The relationship between the Green Acres development in the three cities seems to be that they are all developing very quickly after the depression and war.

The Green Acres development also seems to be somewhat new. In this area they are all somewhat close together; another desirable attribute being close to city life but still having plenty of space to leave a luxurious life at a reasonable price. In its location, the house is a 5 minutes walk from the Valley Stream Station, 29 minutes from Penn Station, and 17 miles from midtown New York or Brooklyn, near main highways, parkways, schools, churches, and stores.
