An exhibit entitled "John Lennon: The New York City Years" opens today at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame annex in Soho.
Lennon lived in New York from 1971 until his death in 1980. He loved the City, as his widow Yoko Ono told The Daily News, "because it's the most culturally developed city in the world." "He was an intellectual," the widow says, "so he felt a part of that."
John greatly preferred the city to his previous home in London because, said Ono, "He's English, and English people are not so kind to local heroes."
His guitar, his much sought-after green card, original hand-written lyrics, photographs and artwork are among the items on display.
