The son has schooled the father in the ways of Apple and Netflix. But he appears to have vastly overrated how much his bachelor pad’s history as the set for 1986’s 50 Shades of Grey (AKA 9 1/2 Weeks) would add to its value.

The 35-year-old son of...Carl Icahn put the property on the market for sale in November, with an initial asking price of $4.3 million, which has now been slashed to $3.7 million, but now the young business magnate has decided he might prefer to rent it, instead.

So, if you’re a Wall Street arbitrageur whose already tried out everything in “50 Shades” and are want to give Mickey Rooney’s moves a try—and you’ve got $20,000 a month—Brett Icahn has a deal for you.

Callan is asking $3.95 million for the place, where she holed up following the financial crisis and where love blossomed with firefighter Anthony Montella, who she married last January.

Sleep Where Dan Loeb Hath Slept

The Third Point founder is reportedly looking for a buyer for his 10,674-square-foot penthouse at 15 Central Park West. If that sounds like something you'd be interested in, people hear that Loeb "wants $100 million," which would represent a 122.22% return (DL and his wife bought the place for $45 million in 2008). While perhaps a tad pricey, consider that back in November, Sandy Weill was able to get $88 million for his 15CPW apartment, a relative dump at 6,744-square-feet.* As for the Loebs, they are apparently "in search of something larger," if you've got any leads.
