"Penny Lane is in my ears and in my eyes!"

Located on a small island just outside Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital city, this tower of light was erected to spread the message of peace and love for all. It becomes illuminated every year from October 9th (John Lennon’s birthday) and remains lit until December 8th (the anniversary of his death).
Strawberry Fields Forever.
Among the 843-acres in New York City’s Central Park lives a 2.5 acre memorial to John Lennon. On special anniversaries, fans new and old gather to pay respects to the late songwriter.
