About Gold Coast
The Gold Coast in New York is the area which runs along the northern shores of the Long Island coast. The Gold Coast earned its name because it has been the most affluent area of New York and on Long Island. During the 19th century, many affluent people who built their empires in New York City moved out to the North Shore of Long Island for it's scenic landscape and beaches. The Vanderbilts, the Roosevelts and the J.P. Morgan families all had their estates built on the North Shore of Long Island. Today, the Gold Coast is turning into more of a living area for commuters who work in New York City but the atmosphere of the 19th century affluence still remains. Many of the old houses which were built during the mid 19th century still remain standing today. The novel The Great Gatsby was based on the Gold Coast and the red and green lights on the shores described in the novel correspond with the two Gold Coast locations, Kings Point and Sands Point. There are listless towns which dot the Gold Coast shore and lie within the community of Nassau County. These are great towns to live in for New York City commuters and for vacation destinations due to the beauty of the area and the beaches.
