Where is the Gatsby mansion located? Gatsby’s mansion is located in West Egg, on Long Island Sound in New York, within commuting distance from New York City. West Egg is actually a peninsula, and is largely considered “less fashionable” than East Egg, located across a small bay (the two peninsulas are named for their shape.)
Where is Gatsby’s mansion located in real-life? Scott Fitzgerald’s classic novel The Great Gatsby was turned into a movie in 2013, set designers drew inspiration from a jaw-dropping 1928 Colonial-style castle in the real-life location of Gatsby’s fictional home—Long Island, New York. Now you can purchase the 14,551-square-foot house for $85 million, reports Trulia.
