Address Strawberry Fields W 72nd St, New York, NY 10019, USA

Borrowing its name from a Beatles song, itself named after a park in Liverpool, the Strawberry Fields memorial is one of the liveliest places in Central Park. It’s where all the fans of John Lennon come to pay tribute to him.

Designed by Bruce Kelly, consisting of a beautiful mosaic in the center of which appears the word Imagine, the Strawberry Fields memorial was financed by Yoko Ono, the widow of John Lennon, to the tune of one million dollars. Located at the entrance of the park, the monument faces the lobby of the Dakota Building, where the ex-Beatle was murdered in the evening of December 8, 1980. A symbol of peace, it is visited every day by hundreds of fans.
