Fans all across the world remembered John Lennon with flowers, candles, and songs Tuesday, which is the 40th anniversary of the former Beatle’s death after being shot outside his New York City apartment building.
According to the Associated Press, in Central Park’s Strawberry Fields section, which is steps from where he was shot and is dedicated to Lennon, photos of the icon ringed the inlaid “Imagine” mosaic, along with a magazine, a small tree, and other memorabilia, as musicians played nearby.
