I think it needs to be mentioned that this is where John Lennon used to live in the city as WELL as the place that he was murdered. Besides this, if youre a John Lennon fan as well as a fan of New York City architecture, this building is very unique and prominent. The great thing to see close by is the area Strawberry Fields which is inspired by John Lennon. It's only about a couple hundred feet away across the street from the Dakota. The famous tiled, ""Imagine."" medalliion can be viewed at this spot in Central Park.
