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.
