"Dakota" Dakota Tip by Pomska

Dakota, New York City: 5 reviews and 9 photos


Dakota was the home of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. Lennon was killed just in the front of his home on the sidewalk.

Dakota was built in 1882. It has 103 apartments and 10 Floors. The architect is Henry J. Hardenbergh.

I've read that the building's name was an ironic reference to its distance from the urban core--it was so far north that it was said to be in the Dakota Territory.

The address is One West 72nd Street at Central Park West.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
