NEW YORK (April 7): Rock legend David Bowie’s former apartment in New York, complete with views of Central Park and his piano, is up for sale for US$6.5 million (RM28.83 million).
Bowie and his model wife Iman lived in the apartment from 1992 to 2002 when they moved to the more bohemian Soho neighbourhood, where the rocker died last year after a secret battle with cancer.
Real estate agency Corcoran listed the ninth-floor condominium at 160 Central Park South, which includes three bedrooms and a Yamaha piano played by Bowie.
The area on the bottom edges of Central Park is one of the most exclusive in New York and is a short walk from institutions including Carnegie Hall and the Museum of Modern Art.
Bowie — whose storied career included taking the persona of a rock alien and challenging definitions of sexuality — had a comparatively conventional life in New York with Iman and their daughter, born in 2000.
In his final years in Soho Bowie frequented a nearby bookstore and walked to a studio to record his final album Blackstar, which came out two days before his death at age 69.
