The Great Gatsby Mansion

I drove by this stucco and terra cotta mansion one day in 2006. It was for sale, so I drove my car through its circular drive and parked. As I sat in my car I was reminded of the house in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary masterpiece. I imagined I was a guest arriving for a grand party in a 1928 Rolls Royce Ascot Tourer. I nicknamed the house The Great Gatsby after that. Since then I have spent some time in the home. It boasts a ballroom sized parlor, shiny parquet floors, pocket doors, grand fireplaces, beamed ceilings, a handsome dark wood staircase, and jawdropping views of the Verrazano Narrows Bridge and the New York City harbor.
