    John and Yoko moved here in February of 1973. Sadly, this would also be the scene of John's untimely death, outside of the building on December 8th, 1980.

    The building where one of music's greatest icons was tragically shot. Gaze at the amazing architecture and then pay your respects by visiting the nearby memorial at Strawberry Fields in Central Park.
