David Bowie's former NYC apartment hits the market for $6.5 million

A newly-listed apartment in the iconic Essex House in Manhattan has everything you'd expect for the pricey Central Park South neighborhood -- a walnut-paneled office, a grand, limestone foyer and a spectacular, 28-foot-wide living space.

But don't be fooled -- the stunning, classically-decorated home isn't your typical NYC property. It's part of music history.

David Bowie and Iman lived in the 3-bed, 2.5-bath apartment for 10 years until they sold it in 2002, and the music icon's personal Yamaha piano still lives in the space. The instrument has been included in each sale of the home since the couple ditched the condo -- and no owner has removed it from the house during their tenure, according to People.

The piano is included in the $6.5 million price tag -- in addition to sweeping Central Park views and maid service courtesy of the iconic Art Deco hotel and residences.
