On our way into the park we happen to stumble upon this Lennon Memorial. Very crowded and many people trying to get a picture with the "Imagine" written on the floor while the rest stands in a circle around them rushing to be next.

Located on west side in the Central Park near Dakota House, it is a circular mosaic design on the ground with "Imagine". You can further move in the park to see other attractions.

A tribute to John Lennon. Very simple very nice. Lots of hustle and bustle you can get a photo easy enough. Some musicians sitting on benches playing games guitar.
