Standing inside the park across from the famous Dakota apartment building , where John Lennon was fatally shot in 1980, is this poignant, tear-shaped garden – a memorial to the slain star. It’s the most visited spot in Central Park, and is maintained with some help by a $1 million grant from Lennon’s widow, Yoko Ono, who still resides at the Dakota.

The peaceful spot contains a grove of stately elms and a tiled mosaic that’s often strewn with rose petals and other offerings from visitors. It says, simply, ‘Imagine.'
