“Imagine . . .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

A must see for Beatles fans. A simple tribute to John Lennon. The picture taken of me standing on the mosaic will remain one of my favorites.

“John Lennon fans”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

In Central Park. This park is huge, there's Belvedere castle and Strawberry Fields - The Dakota (John Lennon) where he was shot on the pavement and where Yoko Ono still resides. Cross Bow Bridge, visit the ice skating rink and the pond with view of the buildings in the backdrop.

“Yeah, just imagine...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

It's just a little corner of central park. It's not ostentatious. It is a testament to what can be accomplished on public space with a tenacious spirit and more money than Croesus. It is, also, the best tribute I can imagine to a man that changed the world's culture at a time when a peaceful existence was believed to be a possibility. Just imagine that.

“Nice to commemorate John Lennon, but not much to see and massive crowds”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2013

I am glad that Strawberry Fields was built, and the tile memorial to him is nice. However, the way it is set up is in an entrance to Central Park, and it is common to find huge crowds there doing nothing in particular other than doing a drive-by.

If you are a big John Lennon fan, you might want to see it, but otherwise, I would say, skip it.
