Jay Gatsby Would be Pissed

Posted by Jason Diamond

The 25-room Colonial Revival mansion built in 1902 on Long Island’s Gold Coast and  thought to be the inspiration behind a F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby, has been turned into a pile of rubble so a bunch of McMansions could be built where it once stood.

I hope the ghost of Daisy Buchanan haunts the people who end up moving there.
