Strawberry Fields—New York City

Strawberry Fields was named in 1981 by a New York City Council law introduced by Councilmember Henry J. Stern and signed by Mayor Edward I. Koch. The black and white mosaic, just inside Central Park at 72nd Street, was fashioned by Italian craftsmen and given as a gift from Naples, Italy. A nearby bronze plaque lists the 121 countries that endorsed Strawberry Fields as a Garden of Peace.

Rarely a day goes by without a remembrance appearing on the mosaic.
