Named for John Alsop King, an early resident, Kings Point is a village and a part of Great Neck in Nassau County, New York, on the North Shore of Long Island. The Village of Kings Point is located in the Town of North Hempstead, on the Great Neck Peninsula, and is often grouped together with the other hamlets and villages referred to collectively as “Great Neck”. n the 1920s, F. Scott Fitzgerald lived in Great Neck, at 6 Gateway Drive in Great Neck Estates, which is probably Great Neck’s greatest claim to fame. It was a modest house, not dissimilar to that of Nick, the protagonist of his novel, The Great Gatsby. It is said that Fitzgerald modeled West Egg, the fictional town in which Nick lived, next to the mansion of Jay Gatsby, after Great Neck (specifically Kings Point), for its epitome of nouveau riche gaudiness, atmosphere, and lifestyle.
