David Bowie’s New York City Apartment Is for Sale – and It Comes With His Piano
You can move into David Bowie's former New York City apartment, if you can find a few million bucks between the couch cushions. They'll even throw in a very special piece of memorabilia.
The property, a 1,877-square-foot flat in the landmark Essex House building at 160 Central Park South, is on the market for $6.45 million. Here's the value-added part: This three-bedroom, three-bath space comes complete with one of Bowie's pianos.
In addition to that cool piece of music history, People reports that the apartment also offers an array of luxury features including things like a walnut-paneled office and a limestone foyer. Because Essex House also features a hotel, the new buyer will be able to use related amenities like room and maid service, as well.
“The living room is very expansive and then you have this amazing office that faces Central Park,” agent Bernice Leventhal of the Corcoran Group told ABC News. “[It has] stunning, unobstructed views of Central Park.”
Bowie lived in the apartment with his wife Iman from 1992-2002. His Yamaha piano was included in that 2002 sale, and has remained there ever since. “I would imagine it is hard to move, but I think it’s really a great catch for buyers,” Leventhal added.
Bowie died last year at the age of 69 after a secret battle with cancer, but he's remained in the news. Two rare albums are set to arrive on vinyl as part of Record Store Day on April 22: Cracked Actor (Live In Los Angeles 1974) focuses on a never officially released concert, while BOWPROMO1 is a reissue of a limited-edition 1971 promo featuring alternative versions of songs that later appeared on Hunky Dory.
