Now that the news of the sad fate of Land's End, the Long Island estate said to be the inspiration for the setting of Daisy Buchanan's parties in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby, has shocked and awed preservationists, lovers of literature, and haters of high-end development communities near and far, today the Daily Mail releases some new photos of the neglected property.
