Strawberry Fields, NYC remembers John Lennon

I went up to Strawberry Fields here in Central Park today to kind of pay my respects to John Lennon, his music and what he stood for, and to just see the scene in person. There were a TON of people out: some quietly paying respect, a large group formed around a band that played Lennon songs, and even the obligatory 'blame the CIA' guy. There were also people getting pictures of themselves taken on the street in front of the Dakota where John was shot. There is a candlelight vigil at Strawberry Fields in the park tonight at 10:50pm.
