The Look Outside The Dakota

The Look
Photo by myself at 72nd Street and Central Park West.

The Dakota is a landmarked apartment building that spans from 72nd to 73rd Street on Central Park West.

This was once the home of John Lennon. Lennon was shot on the sidewalk outside the building one December night, while walking home with his wife, Yoko Ono.

I was near The Dakota briefly, Monday morning. An entire tour bus had just stopped there. I overheard a fellow at a newsstand who said the tourists come by constantly, every single day.

I am a great fan of John Lennon. I don't think I would want to visit the place where he was killed, beautiful though it is.

I understand how you feel, Laura, even though I've been by the Dakota. Perhaps you would prefer the Strawberry Fields memorial to John Lennon just across the street in Central Park. Kitty wrote about it here.
