Other Gatsby Houses

Razed after WWII, Beacon Towers, the home of ten year widow Alva Vanderbilt Belmont was another inspiration for Fitzgerald.  Also in Sands Point (aka: East Egg) both homes will have to survive in the memory of Gatsby readers.  Of the 1,200 grand estates that once lined the North Shore of Long Island and the approximately 400 that survive today, this blog will try to keep the history of our unique island alive and help spread awareness of the past, present, and future of these wonderful homes.
