    The self promotion of humanity
    As a son of Liverpool, i knew this was a must see in New York. I felt the warm Bohemien vibe walking through the local area. I entered the memoral. The utter shamelessness and selfish promotion for a selfie with v sign towards eyes is crass.People sitting on mosaic for a photo. You should be ashamed!!. I knelt at the side and placed a hand on the mosaic out of respect for the person and the nature of his representation. Secondly, we have a guy busking beatles and John Lennon songs with microphone attached to his ear. The singing had no relation to how the song sounded.Also guy was saying "Let's get this party started". Its not about not singing, it's about singing to reflect the environment and the artist. So if you have not got the gist already, i wasnt happy. So if you want to see selfish, overindulgent individuals this is a must see!!.

    Sunny Day Reminiscing.
    We had a nice long walk in the Park and this was one of the stops. The landscaping and the memorial are lovely, near where John lived and died. Some musicians were playing his music for a sing-a-long. Lovely on a sunny day. Lots of places to sit and relax.

    Nice place to visit
    A nice tribute to John. A statue would be better, we were told his wife didn't want a statue but there are many other statue tributes to others in Central Park that look majestic. Thankfully, there were some roses on the tribute. I was glad there was as didn't have the opportunity to buy any to place on there. Busker singing Beatles songs by it. Everyone was respectful when we visited, it was busy but no one standing, sitting or doing selfies on the tribute!

    All You Need Is Love
    On your visit to Central Park I would definitely recommend a visit to Strawberry Fields. It is a beautiful, tasteful tribute to John Lennon who used to live in New York City and was sadly killed nearby. As well as the Imagine mosiac there is also the Garden of Peace. There is a plaque on a rock nearby to show the nations that have endorsed this. It is a beautiful place to contemplate life and that we need more love in our lives.

    Beautiful tribute to 40th anniversary
    While out on my morning run through Central Park, I wanted to make sure to pay my regards to one of my favorite artists. The day prior marked his 40th passing anniversary. It was heartwarming to experience it with other fans and seeing some notes and letters placed. Truly a special memorial.

    Moving Tribute to John Lennon. Usually Crowded with Many Annoying Tourists
    Moving tribute to the great John Lennon who was taken from us by a gunman a short distance from this spot. Try to go early in the day when it is not overrun with hordes of tourists. I enjoyed the musicians nearby playing Beatles tunes but the mob at the memorial and the frenzy to get a selfie sitting on the memorial is really annoying.

It is right off west 72nd street and is a short distance into Central Park. The memorial is beautiful and I recommend seeing it.
