F Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby' turned out to be the most nourishing novel I read ... a miracle of talent ... a triumph of technique Richard Yates
The Great Gatsby takes place from spring to autumn in 1922, mostly on Long Island and Manhattan. Gatsby throws lavish parties at his West Egg estate. The Oheka Castle, also known as the Otto Kahn Estate, is a mansion from that era located on the 'Gold Coast' of Long Island, Huntington, New York. In the Sands Point Preserve, the Gould-Guggenheim Estate offers two other Quintessential Gold Coast Mansions.
In the novel, the "valley of ashes" lies between East Egg and Manhattan. Today, check out Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens. The park was created from the former Corona Ash Dumps. The dump, filled with garbage, horse manure and ashes from coal-burning furnaces, was cleared under the direction of New York Parks Commissioner Robert Moses for the 1939-1940 World's Fair. - AsNotedIn
