6 Gateway Drive, Great Neck real estate, Long Island Gold Coast, F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Instead of just driving around Long Island’s Gold Coast and ogling the Jazz Age mansions, pretending to be a character in The Great Gatsby, you can now live within the walls of perhaps the Gatsby-est home of them all. The Wall Street Journal reports that 6 Gateway Drive in Great Neck, the Mediterranean-style mansion where F. Scott Fitzgerald started writing his iconic novel, is for sale for $3,888,888. The author and his wife Zelda lived in the 5,174-square-foot home between October 1922 and and April 1924, smack in the middle of the Roaring Twenties scene that he depicted in his book.
