  • Alan Wilzig is the inspiration for a character in “The Wolf of Wall Street.”
  • He’s been trying to sell his Tribeca townhouse for years.
  • The home recently had its price chopped by another $1 million.

Alan Wilzig, the real-life inspiration for a character in “The Wolf of Wall Street,” is having a hard time getting rid of his New York City home.

Wilzig’s Tribeca mansion has been on the market since 2014, when it listed for $44 million. It was later offered for $24.885 million and is now up for sale again for $18.75 million, down from $19.75 million in its fourth price chop.

Each time the townhouse gets relisted, its staging gets more and more tame. Many of its more eccentric features have disappeared and it’s now more of a typical space in line with the surrounding area.

The 6,500-square-foot townhouse has a 2,200-square-foot roof deck, backyard, three bedrooms, and an attached multipurpose garage.

Wilzig inspired the character who introduced Leonardo DiCaprio’s character to his future wife in a pool-party scene in the 2013 film.

Jane Powers of Douglas Elliman now has the listing.

This area was previously home to a neon pink aquarium and a motorcycle display. The aquarium is still there, but it’s much more subtle now.

Speaking of motorcycles, Wilzig is a big fan. He kept his in the attached garage.

In general, though, the home’s decor seems to have been toned down quite a bit.

The kitchen has bar seating, a chalkboard wall, and a huge counter.

Even the media room was able to shed its bachelor pad vibe.
