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 ” .
