Cold Call Where John Thomas Financial Hath Cold Called!

* Launch your scandal-plagued hedge fund where Steve Cohen hath launched his scandal plagued hedge fund!

* Learn to pretend to trade where Shia LaBeouf hath learned to pretend to trade!

* Threaten to run over a broker “in the street” where Tommy Belesis hath threatened to run over a broker “in the street”!

That’s right, decision makers of the household: the 23rd floor of 14 Wall Street, a space with a whole lotta history, could be yours.

Brokerage-firm CEO Tommy Belesis, getting smacked with a slew of employee defections, is giving up his posh Wall Street headquarters, The Post has learned. John Thomas Financial, which also has been buffeted by regulatory probes, occupies the entire 23rd floor of 14 Wall St. — a space that is being marketed for “immediate possession,” sources said. The 38,705-square-foot space has been on the market for two weeks through real estate brokerage CBRE, according to real estate listing service CoStar Group…The loss of Belesis’ polished headquarters, which he outfitted with attendants in the bathrooms and security cameras over every desk, is just the latest blow to the Merrick, NY, native — once a regular on cable-television news outlets. At its peak, JTF had 200 brokers who he would seek to inspire every morning with “Eye of the Tiger,” and other “Rocky” theme music blaring through the office’s sound system. The 23rd floor of 14 Wall was also: the 1992 launching pad for hedge fund titan Steve Cohen’s SAC Capital [and] where Shia Labeouf prepped for his role in “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”

Act fast.

    The space comes completely furnished*.

    *There are no chairs

  2. Windy City Guest says:

    So is he moving his shop to New Jersey? Really just embrace the JT Marlin-esque nature of the way his firm does business?

    Bess, perhaps DB could rent it and turn it into a trading floor themed interactive theater experience a la Tony & Tina's Wedding?

    You have to admit they had amazing foresight to use "Eye Of The Tiger" on the reg at this place.

    So many times it happens too fast
    You trade your passion for glory
    Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
    You must fight just to keep them alive

  5. Movie Buff says:

    Long Island, you idiot.

    I got dibs on the hair product and steroid dispenser in the men's bathroom.

    Time to go through those trash cans for leads!

  8. J. Epstein says:

    Security cameras *over* the desk? What an odd person.

  9. Hobbes says:

    That office probably smells worse than a 12-year old boy after his first time using Axe body spray.

  10. Guest says:

    Are we going to be getting a blow by blow account of the belesis end?

  11. Puncity says:

    Standing room only to see everyone's favorite Greek God fall

  12. Guest says:

    We'll all be dead by the time your nutty professor makes us any money!

  13. Mrs_Slocombe says:

    …they are forwarding all calls to the Sizzler in Secaucus, NJ…..Please hold for Mr. Belesis, he on fries.

    good news, they still have the complimentary mints in the mens room and the knock-off Polo and condom dispenser is fully loaded for her pleasure.

    All the fools that believed where in mid-twenties, easy prey. Posh partying, drinking, and what else? lies, slutty assistants that though their *(&$% didn't smell. All of them floating on artificial clouds that was created by themselves. All the while the end was known to many as absolut and soon coming, except to those in the inside, and the leaders. There is a saying "Grow fast, grow tall…fall fast and fall short". All of them without work and on the street, reputation irrevocably ruined wherever they go. Soon they'll be asking for tips…
