In 'Wall Street' Movie, Real Estate Tells a New Story

When Oliver Stone's sequel to his 1987 hit "Wall Street"opens in September, viewers will see some familiar characters and an updated plot of complex financial shenanigans -- as well as a dramatically altered map of New York City real estate.

Where, for example, is Gordon "greed is good" Gekko (played again by Michael Douglas) living these days?

When "Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps" opens, Gekko's 1970s-era Hamptons beach house is gone. (Well, he just gotten out of jail). So he's holed up on the Upper West Side, in the west 60s near Lincoln Center -- in a rented penthouse apartment with, ugh, rented furniture, says the film's production designer Kristi Zea.

As for the young and ambitious trader character, now named Jacob and played by Shia LaBeouf, he splurges bonus money on a 2,500-square converted loft in (where else?) trendy Chelsea, in the West 20s, to be exact.
