Gatsby is all the way across the lawns..... next door, doesn't necessarily mean the homes are close together. None-the-less, Gatsby seems to be deep in thought.... as if he wanted to be alone.

But I didn’t call to him, for he gave a sudden intimation that he was content to be alone — he stretched out his arms toward the dark water in a curious way, and, far as I was from him, I could have sworn he was trembling.
