Gatsby’s Long Island with Monica Randall

 Perhaps the most lavish parties ever held in the pages of American literature 
were the Galas Jay Gatsby threw at his estate on Long Island’s North Shore.
The original Gatsby Mansion that inspired F. Scott Fitzgerald, 
remains hidden behind rusting gates,
 forgotten relics of an era that will never come again.

Join Historian and bestselling author, 
Monica Randall
for this colorful slide presentation based on her popular book,
Mansions of the Gold Coast.
It includes rare photos of the sprawling castle that inspired Fitzgerald to write,
The Great Gatsby.
Included in the program are little known details and photos of the infamous Woodward Murder Case,
The Mysterious F.W. Woodworth Mansion, “Winfield,” and
 Furguson Castle, with its floors paved with tomb stones.
