If you consider yourself a philosopher, influencer, thinker or peace activist. If you are heart-filled with love for your brother of another mother, then join us at Strawberry Fields, Central Park just opposite to the Dakota Apartments where the famous John Lennon lived and was murdered December 8th, 1980 by a man that reflected everything opposite to what John Lennon and the Beatles represented – piece, communication, reaching out and love both plutonic and romantic. Things plaguing people’s minds then, and again and again today.
The hope and love expressed by John Lennon lives on thanks to Yoko Ono and many other contributors of the Strawberry fields. In a city most fitting – the melting pot so called where people from all cultures, religions, races, places stand alongside their neighbors, co-workers, friends and families to bring us as close as we can to that dream sang about by John Lennon and his co-composers Ono that make it New York today.
Come to Strawberry Fields, a flicker of the burning lights of tolerance, hope and diversity of dreams that live on through the lyrics of Imagine sang daily by many musicians and the actions of those honoring the memories of John Lennon as they pass by.

And we are not talking about the political race with those flares of anger carried between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
This is the largest marathon in the world, with 50,530.finishers in 2014 since it began in 1970. It was not until 1976 when they took the race from the park to the roads – Verrazano Bridge.
The NYC Marathon is a race of courage, endurance, stamina and commitment. You cannot just wake up tomorrow morning and jump into gear for the 26.2-mile marathon. You have to prepare, commit and register for a chance to be picked in the lottery of applicants.
It is held on the first Sunday of November and attracts professional competitors and amateurs from all over the world.
This year, a Brooklyn born family of Quadruplets will be racing to the finish line. We will be joining them on this journey with Brooklyn pride (#BKProud) and hopes that we one day can be the amateurs in this great race of champions!
SUNDAY, November 6, 9AM ET
Come join the multitude of colors, cultures and countries!
