There is often a homage to John Lennon in this park and flowers are arrayed on the Imagine plaque, honoring the lead singer.
I always thought that this specific spot in Central Park was the Strawberry Fields, the Beatles were referring to in their songs. However, the song was actually inspired by Lennon's memories of playing in a garden of a Salvation Army house called "Strawberry Fields".
