Thousands of tourists visit the memorial every day.  Many bring flowers…..candles……..toys mentioned in his music……..and photographs of John which they leaves behind.  Then they take thousands of “selfies”.

I was there at the DAKOTA when John was shot……….I spent the rest of the night with thousands of New Yorkers who gathered when they heard the news.  We lit candles and sang Beatles songs throughout the night.
