200 Claremont Avenue.

Fitzgerald’s pre-Gatsby digs on Claremont Ave.

Following his discharge from the War in 1919, Francis Scott Key Fitzgerald settled in a room at 200 Claremont Avenue in Riverside Park. His bachelor pad days were short-lived as he married Zelda Sayre on April 3, 1920 at St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The couple remained in the City until 1922 when they moved to Long Island. A move that inspired Fitzgerald to write The Great Gatsby.
