On the 38th and final pass of his 17th birthday, Overbrook quarterback Tommy Wyatt didn't exactly close his eyes and make a wish. But it was something like that.

If you live in Audubon Park, your neighbors are probably "the people you grew up with," says Mary Stokes, who moved there with her parents in 1941. Stokes is 74 now, and she and other residents love the villagelike coziness of this unusual Camden County municipality. Audubon Park is a single square mile between Nicholson Road, the Black Horse Pike, and Peter's Creek. It has no stores, schools, or churches, and the real estate is collective property. "There were supposed to be Audubon Parks all over America," says Kristin M. Szylvian, whose book The Mutual Housing Experiment - New Deal Communities for the Urban Middle Class was published in July by Temple University Press.
