But he didn't actually grow up in Levittown. According to his mom, the O'Reilly family lived in Westbury, a few miles from Levittown. Certainly not as working class as Levittown. When pressed, Bill claimed that he was from "the Westbury section of Levittown." It's even in his bio at foxnews.com. Wouldn't that be like saying you're from the Bronx, the Manhattan section of the Bronx?

why does this even matter?

but to answer...

i have a friend who lives in westbury. i have a friend who lives in levittown. the person who lives in levittown has the bigger house. who friggin cares? long island as a whole is a middle class, working class area, spotted with upper-middle class and rich neighborhoods, especially towards the north shore.

i don't know what street o'reilly actually grew up on. i don't really care either. westbury borders levittown, hicksville, carle place, hempstead, east meadow, blah blah blah. all of those towns are pretty much the same demographicly. if you drive down hempstead turnpike or rt. 106, you couldn't tell when one town ended and the next began. the old westbury part of westbury is decidedly more upper class. but again... why does this matter? maybe he was in the levittown school district, so he considers himself from levittown (even though he went to private school for high school). if this is an issue for you, you deffinetly need other issues.

Well I'm not losing sleep over it, or anything. I just think it's odd that he lied about it.

it's not quite a lie, not quite the truth. town borders on long island are so blurred that it doesn't really matter. people with addresses in one town consider themselves parts of another town because of where the school district lines fall, etc. etc. etc. craig biggio of the houston astros says he's from smithtown, ny, even though he was born and raised in kings park, ny, a bordering town, but also part of the township of smithtown. it's a confusing place to be sometimes

I suppose. But is there a "Westbury section of Levittown?" That part didn't make sense to me.
