The John Lennon Memorial in Central Park


YouTube direct

John Lennon was tragically taken 27 years ago this month and once again thousands of people visited the Strawberry Fields Memorial in New York’s Central Park. The memorial is close to the Dakota Building where John lived and was murdered on December 8, 1980. The memorial is set in a 2.5 acre landscaped area of the park and is dedicated to Lennon. The memorial opened on what would have been Lennon’s 45th Birthday on October 9th 1985 and was underwritten by Yoko Ono, Lennon’s widow. The gardens are not only a place to celebrate the life of John Lennon, it is a place to reflect peace, during the terrorist attacks on the United States on September 11 2001 the gardens were used by hundreds for prayer and reflection of the happening events.
