F. Scott Fitzgerald’s former home in Great Neck, the location that inspired his classic novel “The Great Gatsby,” is for sale. The seller is looking to fetch $3.9 for the Long Island home.
According to the real estate listing, Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda rented the home for two years in the early 1920s. Check it out:
Zelda called it “our nifty little Babbit-home at Great Neck,” and it became their base for parties and visits to even more luxurious homes in the vicinity, which eventually became the class-conscious West Egg and East Egg of “Gatsby.”
