favorite area of John Lennon fronting his house in the Dakota Apartments at the upper west side in central park hence the song strawberry fields forever. This was made in tribute to John Lennon who was gunned down in 1981 by a deranged fan. And to commemorate his life, talents and memory, the New York Council in 1981 designated this area, the couple's favorite in Central Park, as Strawberry Fields and the area was remodeled and landscaping done with some donation from Yoko Ono and is one of the major attractions for the beatles fans and curious tourists going on a walking or carriage tour of central park.
