First, an apology: This post has nothing to do with food, but this story was too good to pass up.
After having read The Great Gatsby by Scott Fitzgerald, I had assumed that the characters and homes were completely fictional. Apparently not so. Gatsby's mansion is rumored to have been inspired by a 25 room mansion off of Long Island Sound. Sadly though, the building is to be razed. The mansion itself will be replaced by five $10 million dollar houses. I say we start a fund to buy the house and repair. I will start with a donation all my money of $17.86. See we're well on our way!
