Gatsby lives next door to Nick.
The Great Gatsby
Gatsby's home is outrageous and gaudy, "a factual imitation of some Hotel de Ville in Normandy, with a tower on one side, spanking new under a thin beard of raw ivy, and a marble swimming pool, and more than forty acres of lawn and garden." The old-world imitation, the new ivy, the vast, wasteful enormity, all suggest Gatsby's inclination to be perceived as grand.
