The historic Dakota is located in the Upper West Side directly across the street from Central Park. Amazing architecture and a creepy ambiance makes this building a must see. Jolly Chriss

Don’t miss if you are in Central Park, more historic for Beatles or John Lennon fans. It is near the American Museum of Natural History. See the nearby Strawberry Fields Memorial in Central Park.

We stay near here while in NYC so we walk past it a lot. It was where John Lennon lived and Strawberry fields and the Imagine spot are just across the street in Central Park, so it's worth a quick look if you want to combine the two. The architecture is impressive. You can't go inside or through the gates, but you can look. Lots of detail on the building that is unique. There is a subway stop right there also.

This iconic building is where John Lennon was shot dead in Dec 1980 By a deranged fan Mark Chapman. This building is still home to Johns widow Yoko Ono, other famous people that live there is Bono from the band U2
