GREAT NECK ESTATES. Just thirty minutes from the excitement and commotion of Manhattan, you can find peace and serenity in a scenic and close-knit community on the shores of Little Neck Bay. With all the grandeur of Great Necks Great Gatsby Era, extolled by its famous resident, F. Scott Fitzgerald, this magnificent six-bedroom, six-and-a-half-bath brick colonial, built in 2006 and sitting on nearly a half-acre of enchantment, combines all the charm of yesteryear with all the amenities sought for today. Great Neck is a peninsula on Long Islands north shore known for its diverse population, cultural activities, and many high-profile residents. Valued for its proximity to Manhattan and its award-winning schools, it has been the home to such notables as Paul Newman, Francis Ford Coppola, Harry F. Sinclair, and Walter P. Chrysler, whose estate is today the U. S. Merchant Marine Academy.
