Rocker Liam Gallagher, who is probably as famous for feuding with his bandmate brother Noel as he is for fronting wildly successful Brit band Oasis, has just purchased a stateside pied-à-terre on Central Park South in NYC. The $2.5M two-bedroom flat is located at the amenity rich Jumeirah Essex House hotel and was originally listed for $3M before Gallagher used his celebrity discount card. The location sure sounds good, but the rocker's unit is in the rear of the building, with no park views. Should Liam decide to only rarely visit the Big Apple, the hotel will happily rent out the unit to defray the $6,800 monthly carrying costs.
