    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!

    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.

The memorial plaque on the floor is a busy spot but a fitting memorial - just on the edge of Central Park and easy to get to from nearby subway stations.

Walked all the way from time square to see this. It was a bit crowded and there was a performer covering Imagine. Not saying this is bad or anything lol. I’m glad I got to visit this site.

Something I hadn’t seen before, people sitting ON the memorial to take pictures!! Seems very disrespectful, I’d like to know what others think.

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