Strawberry Fields/Imagine Mosaic

Bet 71st and 74th Sts on the Central Park West side
Manhattan, NY 10023

Central Park


Named after the John Lennon and Paul McCartney song "Strawberry Fields Forever" and located near the Dakota (where John Lennon lived and was later murdered), this 2.5-acre landscaped section of the park was designed by Bruce Kelly and unveiled on October 9, 1985, on what would have been Lennon's 45th birthday. The stunning black-and-white tile mosaic in the center of Strawberry Fields includes the word "Imagine" in the middle, a tribute to the singer-songwriter-peacemaker. On any given day, you can find flowers and strawberries arranged in the form of peace signs, guitars and handwritten notes from Lennon fans.
