John Lennon memorial, Strawberry Fields in Central Park

Visiting Strawberry Fields in New York City’s Central Park is probably an example of grief tourism because it’s a memorial to John Lennon. When I was there, several people had left flowers on the “Imagine” mosaic. There was a guy playing his guitar and singing Beatles songs.

My friend (a New Yorker and huge Beatles fan) then took my wife and I to the Dakota Building to show us where John Lennon had been shot. Here’s one story by a John Lennon fan who visisted Strawberry Fields and the Dakota Building nearby.

By the way, this has been an add-on to my one day in New York City post a couple of days ago.
