    Remembering John 29 Years Later

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sjunat55 told me, 'The 29th anniversary of his death is tomorrow- I hope it's remembered by many around the world.'
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    On December 8, 1980 John Lennon was murdered in front of his New York home, the Dakota.

    29 Years, and fans still come to the entrance of the building, to Strawberry Fields in Central Park- some of them grew up with his music, like a woman playing tapes on a boom-box by the Imagine mosaic- some weren't even born when he was killed, like members of a band who played his songs on the band shell.

    All Those Years Ago, and we still remember.

     

    I took these photos on Sunday, December 6, 2009 at the Dakota and Central Park in Manhattan's West Side in New York City where Lennon lived the last years of his life.
