Nassau County was once the eastern 70% of Queens County. It was incorporated independently from the borough in 1899, and became the Gilded Age residence of some of America’s most affluent and influential families of the twentieth century. The North Shore, or Gold Coast, has been the inspiration for many a novel, most notably The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, who was rumored to have written the story based on parties he attended at a Sands Point mansion owned by his editor. The Gold Coast was called home by influential politicians as well as affluent families that built their empires in the banking, manufacturing, oil, shipping, and retail industries in the early 1900’s.
