North of Buffalo lies the Town of Tonawanda, one of Buffalo's largest suburbs. The bulk of the town was subdivided in the 1920s, and some limited development occurred before the Great Depression and World War II. In the prosperous years following World War II, development in Tonawanda exploded, and the town nearly reached buildout by 1960. Tonawanda has a local reputation as being the region's trademark mid-century suburb, where away from the Buffalo city line it seems like practically every house, commercial building, factory and civic structure was built between 1950 and 1960.
Driving through Tonawanda's subdivisions can be like a trip back in time, The commercial districts are also little changed from the 1950s too, save for some facade updates, and the replacement of neon-laden Googie-style signs with plastic boxes on poles, and more recently, a proliferation of electronic message centers,
East of Cleveland, some suburbs have a building stock that only spans a period of about five years. The cities of Willowick and Wickliffe were practically empty in the early 1950s save for some scattered farmhouses and stillborn pre-Depression subdivisions, and were completely built out by the late 1950s. Lyndhurst and Mayfield Heights are similar; subdivided in the 1920s, almost no development until the 1950s, and mostly scattered infill and redevelopment after 1960.
I'm curious about other cities and towns where it seems like everything was built in a short span; not so much exurbs that are only beginning to develop, but those places where practically every house was built in a five or ten year span.
