Don't Miss The Dakota

I hadn’t been to Strawberry Fields since I was a kid, and I wanted to revisit the memorable site in Central Park.  There isn’t all that much involved with visiting Strawberry Fields, other than taking photos with the memorial mosaic in the ground with the word “Imagine” in the center. This memorial was built to honor the late John Lennon after he was killed, as this was his favorite spot in Central Park.  Though it isn’t much, it’s meaningful to a lot of people, including me.

I soon realized all the Beatles fans visiting the site were quickly heading toward 72nd Street to see The Dakota, right across the street from Strawberry Fields.  This is the building where John Lennon not only resided, but was also killed just outside. I was sure I’d seen the building as a kid, but didn’t have much memory of it, so I followed the heard to the street corner. 

The building is awesome, and the top story window where John Lennon once lived was actually lit up, so it was easy to spot.  People were surrounding the building taking photographs. The security guard of The Dakota, as well as the tour guides in Central Park was full of knowledge about the building.  It was really cool as a fan of John Lennon to see the site where he lived and died.

NYCTourist Travel Info

Features: Strawberry Fields NYC is a memorial in Central Park for the late John Lennon, music icon of The Beatles.   Though the name describes a field, the meaning follows The Beatles ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’, while the memorial is actually a stone triangle in the ground in Central Park, with a central mosaic with the word ’Imagine,’ after another famous song by John Lennon.

Why We Go: Tourists, locals, John Lennon fans and passersbys visit this spot everyday as both a memorial to the music legend, as well as a famous NYC sight.

  • Remember a Legend: John Lennon’s music has touched many people, from Beatle-mania fans from the 60’s to much later and even recent generations.  His message and hope for peace through his music continues to live on and people continue to love and appreciate his music, and visit his memorial.
  • A Day in the Life:  For fans of John Lennon, one of the coolest aspects of Strawberry Fields New York is that this was John’s favorite place in all of Central Park, which is why this specific location was chosen for the Imagine mosaic to be placed.  Visit a place John himself would frequent when he lived at the Dakota across the street.

Inside Knowledge: Strawberry Fields NYC is located directly across the street from The Dakota, the building John Lennon lived in at the time of his death, and the same building he was shot outside of. The Dakota is a popular NYC sight as well, and you can easily walk from Strawberry Fields NYC to The Dakota in minutes, as John Lennon often did.

 

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring a Camera:  Strawberry Fields NYC is one of the most famous sights in NYC to photograph, and you won’t want to miss getting your picture taken next to this iconic memorial.
  • Do Visit The Dakota:  Just across the street from Strawberry Fields Central Park NY is The Dakota, where John Lennon lived at the time of his death.  Security guards watch the entrance and are very knowledgeable about the scene of John Lennon’s death and details of where he was. Yoko Ono, John’s widow still lives in the building as well.
  • Don’t Expect Strawberries: Don’t be fooled by the name and expect to see fields of growing strawberries.Strawberry Fields New York is a stone memorial!
  • Don’t Skip the Rest of The Park: Strawberry Fields Central Park NY is locate within the world famous Central Park, so while you’re visiting this memorial, definitely take advantage of the surroundings and explore all there is to do inside this magnificent oasis in New York City.
