A nice simple tribute to John Lennon. Aside from the pesky pedi-cab and tour bus ticket sales people - this spot in Central Park is a great place to pause and reflect. A great musician and human being taken much too early 'Strawberry Fields' pays homage to the man in a manner in which he probably would approve. Give peace a chance.

This small part of the park is dedicated to JOhn's memory. Just outside the park entrance on 72nd Street is the famed Dakota Apartments where John lived. If you walk into the park you will come uon the famous "Imagine" tilework. A great photo shoot for Lennon fans

As someone who grew up loving the Beatles and remembers leaving the office to see newspaper headlines that John Lennon had been murdered, coming here and seeing the Imagine mosaic on the ground in front of the Dakota where that terrible murder took place is a great place for reflection. Merry Christmas (War Is Over)

Strawberry Fields in Central Park (you enter at CPW at 72nd Street) is a fitting tribute to the great musical genius, John Lennon. There are sometimes musicians playing Lennon's music by the memorial, and it is a peaceful and beautiful place to come and spend some time.

There are always musicians playing Beatles and other songs sitting on the benches around the "Imagine" mosaic. It's interesting to see what fans have left there in tribute. Take a walk through the trails beyond. Very peaceful and some lovely plantings. A nice break from the hustle and bustle of the City.
