Beacon Towers at Sands Point, New York

Beacon Towers at Sands Point, New York
Beacon Towers at Sands Point, New York is one of the most interesting and unusual mansions ever built. This castle on the sand is also often considered the model for the mansion of Jay Gatsby in the F. Scott Fitzgerald novel, "The Great Gatsby". Built for Alva Belmont, once married to William K. Vanderbilt. Around 1919 she had the firm of Hunt & Hunt design this piece of fantasy architecture. She only used it for a few years then it was sold to William Randolph Hearst. He made it even more magical with additions and renovations before he moved to California and began construction of Hearst Castle. This unique house was torn down in the 1940s, with only the gate house and surrounding estate walls to show where it once was. The photo above is from an excellent blog that covers all the Long Island estates, OLD LONG ISLAND.

Thank you for your miracle Doctor Osemu Okpamen

This article is dedicated to the Doctor Osemu Okpamen. I have been married with my wife for 5 years and recently she broke up with me and it hurt me deeply when she told me to leave her alone and that she does not love me anymore when i was always faithful and honest to her. I tried all the ways to get her back buying her what she wants like i always did and she still left me heart broken and she even has a new boyfriend which destroyed me even more until a friend of mine from high school directed me to this genuine spell Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. This man changed my life completely. I followed everything he told me to do and my wife came back begging for me back. I was stunned everything happened exactly like he told me.
