New Yorkers celebrate John Lennon’s birthday

By Charles Winters – October 9, 2010

New Yorkers are gathering on Saturday to celebrate John Lennon’s 70th birthday. A crowd flocked to the tranquil Strawberry Fields at Central Park to kick off the celebration early in the morning. A nearby benefit concert was also scheduled to follow.

Strawberry Fields is a mosaic shrine to Lennon donated by the city of Naples, Italy. The 2.5-acre site is named after the Lennon song, which observes that “living is easy with eyes closed, misunderstanding all you see.” A plaque lists 121 countries that endorse Strawberry Fields as a Garden of Peace.

Nowhere Boy, the docu-movie about Lennon’s early years, also came out this weekend.

The birthday celebration got started on Friday in England, where Google UK released a video “doodle” to a Lennon soundtrack.
