Because no one in their right mind would pay $44 million for a Tribeca maisonette that's actually an ode to a crappy 1990s nightclub, the over-the-top house of one of the real-life characters personified in The Wolf of Wall Street has chopped its ask to $38.5 million. Although even that's still an exorbitant ask for the 7,500-square-foot maisonette, owner Alan Wilzig has toned the house down in more recent listing pictures (probably at the behest of a broker who nabbed the open listing after it failed to move when FSBO.) Still, the maisonette's ask is being chipped away at ever so slowly. It also appears that the house may be self-listed again; if Wilzig's gonna chop the ask anyway, might as well not pay that broker fee, right?
For a look at Wilzig's house when it first listed (and toed the line between disco aquarium and ridiculous bachelor pad) head this way.
