The building is near the subway exit that you use anyway to go to the John Lennon Memorial called Strawberry Fields in Central Park. So if you are here, why not have a look at the place where Lennon was shot?

This was one of the first large buildings on the Upper West Side. It once stood alone. Later, this building became famous for its part in the movie Rosemary's Baby and as we all know, it became the home of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. John was assassinated in the driveway of this edifice in the 1980's

The dakota is the building in which John Lennon and Yoko Ono lived. It's alos where he was shot and died. This interesting structure is just across from Central Park and nearby Strawberry Fields, a small place of honor for John Lenon set in the park itself. They would bothe be seen together from a walk getting off on a west side subway on 72nd street.

I am a big fan of John Lennon's so this was a must for me. Although the sun was shining, the entrance to the Dakota was in shade and there was a wind blowing making it cool. It was an experience standing and looking at the place where his life ended. It also made me realize how close he was to arrivng home safe and sound and that was sad.

Regardless of the Beatles link to this building and it still being the home of yoko ono, it really is a wonderful building on the west side of central park, this entire area is dotted with some wonderful apartment blocks, especially the upper west side of 84th street to around 92th
