I finally made it to Strawberry Fields to check out the memorial and it was pretty cool. Definitely worth a stop if you're in the area!

This is a lovely spot in Central Park, there was a singer gently playing Beatles songs when we visited, lots of people getting there photo taken with the Strawberry Fields memorial. I highly recommend having a bad portrait done by the artist called Bad Portraits...More

Many members of my party were fans of the Beetles and deeply affected by his death, so this is a great source of closure. There are many benches to stop and take a moment and there is often a busker singing the same two Beetles...More

For any Beatles fan this is an iconic if sad area of Central Park. It is marked as a place of silence and quiet reflection but occasionally there will be a Beatles fan playing a guitar and singing a John Lennon song.

Few minutes walk from Dakota apartment. There is few artist taking turn to play Beatles and John Lennon ' s song all day. Some people are singing along, some people are dancing. Can't help myself reminiscing the good times. Beautiful memorial.

While strolling through the Central park, we made a turn to visit and pay our respects to John Lennon. Being there after the Jan snow storm the entire park was in white, what made a special feeling and appearance. I thought maybe it's covered with...More

Visited on a cold, sunny day in March, and had no problem finding Strawberry Fields. There were dozens gathered there, incl a guy playing Beatles on a guitar (oddly, I think he was playing Yesterday when we walked by, wasn't that actually a McCartney composition?)....More

We visited Strawberry Fields, John Lennon Memorial on Wednesday March 21 during the latest Nor’easter to hit NYC! We arrived around 9:30am in a driving snow storm, cleaned off the Imagine memorial and lost ourselves in thought! It was such a beautiful and peaceful place...More

Really is incredible to see this in person. What made our experience special was a group of students protesting through the park after walking out of school for 17 minutes to protest gun violence and the lack of safety in schools. Couldn't help but think...More

I am not sure. We were there in August in the middle of summer and it was very hot. You would be able to do the walk around the teardrop shape garden path, but if it snows the "Imagine" mosaic on the path would be covered... More
