Nice memorial

This is worth a walk-by while in Central Park. There is a lot of positive energy here and people are genuinely here for the right reasons. A suitable place for a legend.

One of the favorite spot in Central Park. Many tourists queuing for taking the photo on the "imagine" circle. I was in the crowd of course :). There were young people singing Beatles songs so the ambiave was so memorable. Love that evening.

I've been there a couple of times, different seasons, and still receiving people all around the world and also there are people playing Beatles and Lennon songs. A place to thinks about peace and about Imagine lyrics.

We planed on walking to Strawberry Fields on our second day in NY. The weather was very cold and a bit drizzly so we thought we might not find crowds. We were wrong. There were many many people yet the space is peaceful. We took photos and there was even a musician playing Imagine among other songs. It was enjoyable... More

We went in December so the park was sparse, however every tourist was gathered here. There is a giant unorganized circle of people surrounding the imagine plaque so expect to have patience in order to get a good photo.

I think this is the best park of the park, so interesting and beautiful. We went on Christmas Day and Sara Yoko and Sean Lennon there. Legends.
