The Great Gatsby

What are some quotes Nick says describing Gatsby's house, the Buchanan house, and George/Myrtle gas station & Dr. Eckleberg?

I can't seem to find any good quotes decribing their home.

Those are a lot of quotes. 


Gatsby's house - The one on my right was a colossal affair by any standard—it was a factual imitation of some Hôtel 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. 


Tom's House -Their house was even more elaborate than I expected, a cheerful red-and-white Georgian Colonial mansion, overlooking the bay.

Garage- The interior was unprosperous and bare; the only car visible was the dust-covered wreck of a Ford which crouched in a dim corner. 

The eyes of Doctor T. J. Eckleburg are blue and gigantic—their retinas are one yard high. They look out of no face, but, instead, from a pair of enormous yellow spectacles which pass over a nonexistent nose"
