Although Strawberry Fields is actually a 2.5-acre landscaped area of Central Park visitors only seem really interested in the 10m2 containing the Imagine mosaic dedicated to the memory of former Beatle John Lennon, who was shot dead at the the adjacent Dakota Apartments. Worth a passing look, but don't go out of your way unless your a huge Lennon fan... More

If you're in Central Park stop by, if you don't visit you're not missing much. It's nice, but all of Central Park is awesome.

Although i came here one year ago, i still remember being around this memorial of John Lennon. A moving tribute i will never forget and walking around Strawberry Fields in Central Park was an amazing visit. Was well respected by other people i saw there, and to listen to someone playing his music on a guitar was fantastic. Would love... More

I have been here at least 3 times. And i still really enjoy stopping here when I am in NYC. The memorial was very busy today and not as quiet as I would have liked. But everyone was here to pay respect to John Lennon's legacy. No matter how busy the memorial is just sitting and listening to some one... More

I loved it. Steady stream of people coming to take picture of the monument. Everyone was being very friendly and taking pictures for each other. Benches all around to sit and enjoy. The guy playing Beatles songs had a great voice. We sat here about 15 mins and just soaked it all in. I loved every second of it.

As a huge Beatle fan, I was really looking forward to seeing the memorial. I was slightly disappointed but mainly because of the atmosphere rather than the memorial itself. The area is supposed to be a quiet place of reflection but it was over run with people jumping onto and laying on the circle and having their pictures taken. Can't... More

As John Lennon and Beatles Fans, my husband and I found this memorial to be touching and serene. We walked the teardrop pathway in silence out of respect. I loved the people watching and listening to someone playing Lennon songs on a guitar. It gets busy on the "Imagine Mosaic" but we managed to get some photos of us there.... More

This tribute to John Lennon should be on every must do list when visiting NYC for the first or hundredth time. The whole area and the mosaic are tranquil and sacred. When there please remember to be respectful.

I love coming down here early in the morning when it's really quiet and nobody is around but park maintenance. It's also fun in the afternoons when there are huge crowds gathered. Someone is always playing guitar and it's a great place to watch locals and tourists.
