Just another building which nobody would take too much notice of without the John Lennon connection. It is just across the road from central park and the corner of the park which has been renamed Strawberry Fields.

Gorgeous building right across from Central Park. Nice to take pictures of the outside of the building, but you aren't permitted in the building unless you live there or are visiting someone who lives there. A sign is clearly posted in front of the building...More

Walked across Central Park to see this iconic building. Beautiful facade and entrance, only diminished by the sadness of John Lennon's murder at the doorway. Still, until that point he had found a happy home here. Couldn't bring myself to visit New York without seeing...More

This is a private residence so you can't go inside unless you live there or are visiting someone who lives there. What's interesting is that this is the former residence of John Lennon, and the current residence of Yoko Ono. Unfortunately this is also where...More

The Dakota is an infamous residence in NYC, located just outside of Central Park West's park entrance. Of course, the gate entrance is where John Lennon's life was taken, too soon. Yoko still lives at The Dakota. The views of Central Park from her apartment...More
