On his 70th birthday, the late John Lennon shows Strawberry Fields are forever in NYC. That's where gaggles of fans showed up to honor the famous member of the Beatles today.
A Central Park sanctuary for John Lennon, Strawberry Fields sprang up after the iconic musician was gunned down in late 1980, nearly 30 years ago today.
And now the legend is honored with literally thousands from as far afield as Barcelona and as close at hand as Queens, according to Canadian Press.
One person at the site in Central Park told the Canadian Press:
"His music speaks to people of any nation, any age, and that's why I think so many young people now who never would have known him still find him so appealing."
Her name is Karen Kriendler Nelson, she's 69, and she lives nearby to "often visits the mosaic that spells out Lennon's song Imagine."
Yes, the lad from Liverpool made quite an impact on generations old and young, as he always gave peace a chance even though his demise was anything but.
