A sleepy hamlet on the North Shore of Long Island, Old Westbury makes up just 8.6 square miles of land — but boy, is that land beautiful.
While it must be fun to drive and gawk at the gated mansions, it’s probably even more fun to stop at the historic Old Westbury Gardens. In fact, you’ve probably already seen it: The gardens have been the filming location for films like “North by Northwest,” “The Age of Innocence,” “Cruel Intentions,” and “Hitch.”
The Buchanan estate in Baz Luhrmann’s 2013 “The Great Gatsby” were inspired by Old Westbury Gardens as well.
