Gatsby's Long Island

Join historian Monica Randall for this slide presentation based on her best-selling book, Mansions of the Gold Coast. You will see rare photos of the sprawling castle that inspired F.Scott Fitzgerald to write The Great Gatsby. Though long since bull- dozed and replaced by split levels, the original mansion was the site of the most lavish parties ever held in the pages of American literature.
