We have been to Strawberry Fields on Lennon's birthday and the experience was magical. People come and go with musical instruments and the crowd sings his songs together. It was one of my most memorable NYC experiences.

I would have liked to see a statue of John near the memorial. The tiles were a damaged and I was just expecting more. The man sitting singing Beatle songs was a definite highlight.

It was quite busy, but a great memorial to a great man. Well worth a trip to Central Park. People were singing Beatles songs, and there was a nice atmosphere.

I love this memorial and what it represents. Unfortunately it was very crowded so couldn't get a decent photo or have a moment to observe it properly but there's a reason it's so popular. A great nan with a beautiful mind. RIP

It is always moving to find this place, inside the park with the mosaic circle with the inscription "Immagine" and outside the park in front of the Dakota residence.

This is a subtle work meant to create pause and provoke reflection, more a curated little portion of Central Park than a memorial. It's literally impossible to enjoy it at anything near peak hours, because of the hoards of tourists and trinket vendors. Go at...More

First we stood in front of the Dakota and looked into the first gate in the arch to the spot where he was murdered. Then we walked across the street to the Strawberry Fields John Lennon Memorial. This consisted of a large circular mosaic with...More

I visited Strawberry Fields, which is a part of Central Park. Strawberry Fields is a memorial that Yoko Ono built for her late husband, John Lennon. In the park is this beautiful mosaic that says "Imagine". It is not unusual to hear musicians singing Beatles/John...More

I am not sure. We were there in August in the middle of summer and it was very hot. You would be able to do the walk around the teardrop shape garden path, but if it snows the "Imagine" mosaic on the path would be covered... More
