The Fabulous Life Of Wall Street Billionaires - Your bailout Money at Work

Think stars are having all of the fun? Think again. These days nobody's making more and spending more than the buttoned-down badasses of Wall Street. From their sprawling estates and tricked-out private yachts to exotic vacation homes and multi-million dollar art collections-- these guys are living larger than anyone else on the planet. Welcome to The Fabulous Life of Billion Dollar Wall Street Ballers

Let's talk salaries people. Hedge Fund King Steven Cohen pulled in $1 billion in 2006. Financier Edward Lampert? He raked in $1.5 billion. That's just one year. And you'd better believe these guys know how to spend their hard earned money too...especially when it comes to real estate. Billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein? He lives in the absolute largest dwelling in all of Manhattan, a 51,000-sq-ft palace on E. 71st street. Eddie Lampert paid over $20 million for a magnificent waterfront property in Greenwich, CT...only to tear it down and rebuild. But of all the Wall Street spenders around, absolutely nobody can outdo Steven Cohen. He's got a 32,000-sq-ft Greenwich home complete with massage, exercise and media rooms, plus a full-size basketball court, tennis court, ice-skating rink and even a 700-square-foot house just for his Zamboni. Cohen has also spent over $700 million in just the past five years building one of the country's greatest private art collections, including works by Vincent van Gogh, Jackson Pollock and Andy Warhol. But not every Wall Street heavyweight digs fine art. Florida financier John Devaney? He spends his multi-millionaire dollar fortune on some very expensive toys including a private Gulfstream jet and TEN yachts. And these tycoons even turn charity into a massive spending spree too. In 2007, Wall Streeters raised $71 million for the poverty-fighting Robin Hood Foundation in just one night.

From their unbelievable mega homes to their mindboggling bonuses and the insane splurges that go with them...this is The Fabulous Life of Billion Dollar Wall Street Ballers.
