With The Great Gatsby releasing this week, the 1920s are back -- or at least an opulent, sexed-up, oddly hip-hop version of them is. But where would J-Gatz party if he were around today, and not, uh... fictional? To answer that question, Thrillist scoured the US to pull together some of the most extravagant examples of America's highfalutin past, and came up with 20 Mansions The Great Gatsby Would Love.
