The Dakota

The famous building where John Lennon lived and was tragically killed, appears in several chapters of New York. The true story of its construction and how it got its name - the tale that it was so-called because it was 'out in the wilderness' is an urban myth - is given in the 'Snow' chapter of the book.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
In 1890, nine-year-old Daisy Ashford wrote a novel and never showed it to the world. It was only after her mother’s death some twenty-eight years later, when she was sorting through old papers with her sisters, that she found the manuscript in a drawer. After the manuscript found its way to publishers, the book – The Young Visiters – came out in 1919, (yes, that is how the title was spelled) to great acclaim. After the book went into several editions, Daisy bought a farm with her earnings, commenting, “I like fresh air and royalty cheques”.
