Although it turns out that Brixton won't be getting a massive lightning-shaped statue in tribute to David Bowie after all, one lucky bidder will now be able to buy and inhabit one of the late singer's actual homes.
The New York City apartment where Bowie and his wife Iman lived from 1992 to 2002 has gone on the market. Located inside Manhattan's Essex House at 190 Central Park South, the property is currently listed at an asking price of $6.5 million USD.
Measuring in at 1,877 square feet, the ninth floor apartment features three bedrooms, two and half bathrooms, and a living room looking out over Central Park. Some of the couple's personal touches remain, like Iman's custom dressing room and some hidden shelves in the living room, though the panic room they had installed in the master bathroom has since been converted back.
Perhaps the most intriguing draw for fans, though, is Bowie's own Yamaha piano. It has been passed down through previous owners and is expected to be included in the sale.
