Hempstead House was built by Jay Gould in the early twentieth century, the Gatsby years of Long Island, for his wife. She wanted a castle, so he built one. She wasn’t satisfied, so that became the stables. Across the lawn he had a second castle built, Hempstead House. The wife ran off with the architect.
Over the years it’s seen many special occasions, and it’s said that not only did F. Scott Fitzgerald attend parties here, but Zeldo, his wife, barfed on the lawn after over indulging. If you look close, you’ll see faces, sea creatures and other grotesques peering down from the facade of the house. And ruling over them all? Death wearing a crown.
