The Great Gatsby is set in and around New York City and Long Island. On the big L.I., there are two areas known as "West Egg" and "East Egg." East Egg is filled with the wealthier, more elite, folks who come from old money. West Egg, on the other hand, is filled with the nouveau riche. Tom and Daisy live in East Egg, while Gatsby and Nick live in West Egg. Class issues ensue.
