We have dined frequently in this lovely historic building with several friends who are fortunate and wise enough to own apartments in The Dakota. Truly an amazing historic structure that is sadly too often remembered by many because of being the site of John Lennon's murder years ago. The Dakota has such a positive rich history - do go by when in the vicinity !

I was born in 1964, the year the Beatles toured Melbourne, Australia. But I think through my much older sister I had an affinity with them and can still remember the day, getting ready for school when the news broke that John Lennon had been murdered. When I went to Strawberry Fields, all these years later, in Central Park and saw the Dakota Building in New York I was unaware of the depth of feelings that would envelope me. You must take note for the history this chap has left not only for the music industry but for his fans, strong and unknowingly strong.

Imposing building and obviously much photographed. Disappointed that there was no plaque to commemorate John Lennon
