lennon-the-new-york-yearsNew John Lennon exhibit opens in New York City

Opening today at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Annex in Manhattan, legendary Beatle, John Lennon is honored with an exhibit dedicated to his life and his musical genius.

Created by his also famous widow, Yoko Ono, it is only fitting that it opens in NY since the exhibit is focused with New York City as the back drop for much John Lennon’s best work until his tragic assassination in the doorway of his NY apartment building.

John Lennon: The New York City Years displays amazing artifacts from Lennon’s life such as the actual famous “New York City” shirt worn by Lennon and the somewhat morbid, yet needed reminder of his violent death; the paper bag contain the bloody clothes he was shot in. Private letters, other personal effects, and, of course guitars and hand written lyrics are on display.

Whether you are an old time New Yorker, a transplant, a music or history fan or whatever; though born a Brit, Lennon was and always will be a important piece of New York.

Located between Spring and Broome on Mercer Street, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ANNEX NYC is extending their hours for the exhibit, but tickets are required. For information call 646.786.6680
