A part of music icon David Bowie's past is up for sale. The late legend's former New York apartment, which has three bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and spectacular Central Park views, has been listed for $6.5 million. David and supermodel wife Iman called the property home for ten years before they sold it for $1.7 million in 2002.

Fans of David might be interested to know that the apartment comes with a unique piece of memorabilia – a pristine Yamaha piano that once belonged to the singer. According to real estate agent firm Corcoran, it is the perfect home to "make beautiful music in."
