Freddie Mercury's Former Home is Fit for a Queen


Freddie Mercury

wouldn't recognize his former New York apartment if he were alive to see the monochromatic beige decor of the 3-bedroom, 4.5-bath unit that recently hit the market for $4.35 million.

The flamboyant and colorful lifestyle of the lead singer of Queen, who died of bronchial pneumonia in 1991, was reflected in his home, with its long-gone floor-to-ceiling mirrors and satin walls described by New York magazine. Sadly for Freddie fans, when new owners took over, the satin walls bit the dust. These days, the look of the one-floor home will still rock you, albeit in a more subtle way.
