A Queens home that bears a strikingly resemblance to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island mansion at 6 Gateway Drive has traded. Songza CEO Elias Roman paid just $2.4 million for the waterfront home at 122 Grosvenor Street in Douglas Manor.

The Mediterranean-style residence was built in 1920 by the same architect of the Kings Point, Long Island home built in 1928 for Fitzgerald and his wife, Zelda. In 2014, the home hit the market asking $3.09 million, according to the New York Post.

Fitzgerald’s Gateway Drive, where he started writing “The Great Gatsby,” sold in January for $3 million.

However, the Grosvenor Street home has seen its share of notable residents as well. The six-bedroom, four-bathroom home is where Gov. Andrew Cuomo first lived with his then-wife, Kerry Kennedy. [NYP] Christopher Cameron
