Strawberry Fields Forever…Period

Jen Jacobs

A tribute and memorial that immortalizes a great man of life, peace and music, a man who recently turned 72 years young if it had not been for the lose of life which he so cherished.

The bronze plaque that will forever shine is engraved with a list with at least 120 countries  that planted flowers and monetary donation for upkeep and Strawberry Fields is known as the ‘Garden Of Peace’.

The death of John Lennon brought many a tears to our eyes, I remember being in San Fransisco watching the 49er’s NFL game when it scrolled at the bottom of my TV that John Lennon had been shot. I was leaving for Minnesota the next day and talk about a dreary flight with that murder going through my head.

Strawberry Fields will forever be in our hearts, a place where we can always find peace. the location is near Central Park West between 71st and 74th Streets in New York.

John Lennon  lived in the Dakota Apartments with his wife Yoko Ono and it was there  that John Lennon was murdered and shot dead while  walking into his home on the 8th of December 1980.

In commemoration of the man and his many talents and his love of life Henry J. Shern (City council member) designated this area where John and Yoko used to love to go as Strawberry fields (based on the song “Strawberry Fields Forever”).

With the help of a Million Dollar donation from Yoko Ono and the brilliance of landscaper architect work of Bruce Kelley the teardrop region came to life.

The mosaic was designed by artists from Naples, Italy and is dead center in Strawberry Fields. The mosaic was named after John Lennon’s song, “Imagine” which is a song that represents a world without war and conflict and an everlasting vision of hope for all of us.

We love you John and thanks for writing about the future of hope within us all that leads to World Peace.
