A touching memorial in a quiet, peaceful spot of Central Park. Definitely worth a visit if you are in New York.

I don't know what it is but whenever I'm in NYC I always end up walking up to the Dakota Building then popping into Central Park to the Strawberry Fields memorial and passing a few moments - maybe it's because it's just such a simple memorial in a simple location in the park linked to John Lennon's sad and untimely...

Nice tribute, very simple. A lot of people taking picture around the "Imagine" sign. It is not the main thing to do in Central Park, but worth a fast visit.

There are always a lot of people looking at this, I guess it is more the fact that it is linked to John Lennon than the thing itself. There are much more interesting things in the park.

This tribute to John Lennon stands as a monument to a great performer but it is also a wonderful spot in Central Park to pause in ones day and give thanks for what we have and what can be learned still. A lovely small place that is ideal for strolls nag or camera shots. Visitors from around the world visit... More

Not what I expected at all. For some reason thought the area would be a lot bigger. The memorial is within Central Park so it won't be missed. It's still worth a visit just to say you have been.

Strawberry Fields is a simple spot with a mosaic tile floor artwork with the words Imagine spelled out. A place to be present and meditative reflecting on the genius of John Lennon. Overlooks his building, the Dakota. Easy to find and easy access using public transportation .

If you know of John Lennon then you will be able to Imagine that back in the day this was a short walk from his New York home in the Dakota building, Strawberry fields is a fitting tribute organised and financed by Lennon's second wife Yoko, I feel sure that John would have been proud to have such a beautiful...

A great place to see for those who loved John Lennon. A beautiful building near the path is where he lived and died.

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.
