A must visit place in Central Park. This is a memorial dedicated to John Lennon. can get very busy with lots of people taking photos too. But we all just wait our turn. There is usually someone there busking.

Nothing overly special but is a landmark that you must visit if you're already in Central Park. It's not very busy as people generally take their photos and go.

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.
