  • A must visit place in Central Park. This is a memorial dedicated to John Lennon. can get very busy with lots of people taking photos too. But we all just wait our turn. There is usually someone there ...  more »
  • I've been wanting to see this for years. Central Park is so beautiful, even in the dead of winter. If you are okay taking a brisk walk through the park don't miss this Imagine memorial. In the Spring ...  more »
  • We went in the morning, to avoid many other tourists at the site and metro. We take the line 1 and descend at 74th Street, the memorial is about 3 blocks from the subway station. The walk to the Central Park West Hey pretty cool and the buildings are more the style we've seen in movies, the neighborhood also eh less busy. There was a gentleman singing Beatles songs at the memorial that made my visit really special. You can see the Dakota memorial building. Worth a visit!

  • From my experience, it's very difficult to get close or a good picture without other people being in the photo, but people were very kind and respective taking turns. I would suggest to sit on one of the surrounding benches and just people watch and listen to all the different languages being spoken. From what I understand, there's always someone around playing guitar and singing and there was a guy doing that while we were there. It makes it interesting and brings people together by singing.
  • A beautiful park and surrounds. A fitting place for a wonderful memorial to the late John Lennon. This place oozes with atmosphere.
  • Lots of people paying their respect. Some even hanging out playing Beatles songs on guitar!
  • Simple memorial in beautiful surrounds. Unfortunately a large number of people were completely inconsiderate and did not treat it with the respect due - standing on and walking over the memorial, pushing others or being inappropriately loud.
  • A must-visit place for Beatles fans. The atmosphere here i special as this place is special.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
