4 Must-see places if you want to see NYC with David Bowie's eyes.See all
Metropolitan Museum of Art
Bowie was a huge fan of the art world – even turning to a canvas himself. While Bowie’s own artwork isn’t on display, you can walk in his footsteps and admire the same paintings and artists he himself admired at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Madison Square Garden
Bowie first performed in NYC in 1972, but it was his performance at the Concert for New York in Madison Square Garden that is one of his most memorable. The performance was in remembrance of the September 11 attack in 2001, and he sang his emotional hit song “Heroes”.See all
The epicentre of the city’s 1960s counterculture movement, and once the heart of NYC’s bohemian creativity, Greenwich Village was a natural fit for Bowie. It was also the site of Electric Lady Studios, where he recorded his first US number one, “Fame”.
Washington Square Park
After purchasing two buildings in 1999 for $US 4 million, Bowie converted them into a penthouse apartment. The location is close to many of his favourite spots, such as Washington Square Park. It is believed he died here in January 2016, and many fans left bouquets of flowers as farewells.See all
