David Bowie’s New York apartment with Central Park views is for sale for $6.5 million

The apartment comes with David Bowie's personal piano!

A stunning three-bedroom New York apartment once owned by David Bowie is on the market for $6.5 million. Bowie and his wife, Iman, lived in the Essex House apartment for the best part of a decade – their Golden Years, you might say! And though they sold the property back in 2002, a small piece of Bowie’s legacy remains – a Yahama piano owned by the legendary singer still stands in the living room.

While the pad’s celebrity past is a huge draw in itself, the Manhattan flat has many more selling points.

Could the most impressive feature be the large living room? Its picture windows frame a clear, unobstructed view of Central Park and the city skyline.

Or is it perhaps the two master-size bedrooms, both with hardwood floors and views across the city?
