START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – LINCOLN CENTER AND STRAWBERRY FIELDS .

Today  it’s  time  for  a  little  culture  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City .  You’re  going  to  Lincoln  Center .

As you  all  discovered  on  your  30  Plus  Teams  Tour  of  New  York  City ,  everything  is  so  BIG  and  so  SPREAD  out .

Lincoln  Center  is  no  exception .

Lincoln  Center  isn’t  just  one  building ,  but  there  seems  to  be  a  lot  of  buildings  that  make  up  the  Lincoln  Center  Complex .

There’s  a movie  theater ,  a  library ,  the  home  of  the  New  York  City  Ballet  Company ,  a school ,  the  world  famous  Julliard  School  and  the  Metropolitan  Opera  House .

That’s  where  you’re  going  today  to  see  an  opera  performance .

Your  cousins  aren’t  going  with  you .

Just  visiting  Lincoln  Center  is  enough  culture  for  them .

While  you’re  at  the  Opera ,  your  two  cousins  are  going  to  72nd  Street  and  Central  Park  West  to  see  a  place  where  quietness  is  appreciated  and  quiet  reflection  is  encouraged .

They’re  going  to  Strawberry  Fields .

It’s  a  quiet  area  of  Central  Park  dedicated  by  Yoko  Ono ,  the  widow  of  John  Lennon .

This  isn’t  the  place  for  screaming  and  yelling .

It’s  a  place  to  remember  what  John  Lennon  talked  about  in  his  songs .

One  in  particular .

Right  across  the  street  is  The  Dakota  Apartment ,  where  Lennon  was  killed .

The  two  of  you  notice  all  the  security  in  front  of  the  building ,  but  for  some  sad  reason  the  entrance  is  what  the  two  of  you  want  to  see .

It  was  where  Lennon  was  shot  by  a  deranged  fan  all  those  years  ago .

As  it’s  early ,  Central  Park  is  full  of  people  walking  their  dogs .

The  two  of  you  look  at  the  map  of  Strawberry  Fields .

You  both  are  looking  for  that  simple  but  moving  tribute  to  Lennon ,  that  black  mosaic  circle .

You  both  see  it  and  someone  has  put  a  single  rose  on  top  of  it .

How  beautiful  you  both  think .

One  doesn’t  need  a . lot  of  words  to  put  on  a memorial  or  the  meaning .

The  tribute  to  John  Lennon  says  it  all  in  one  word  ” IMAGINE  ” .
