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?
October, derived from the Latin Octo, which means eight, was actually the eighth month of the year in the original Roman calendar of ten months. It wasn’t until the Julian calendar was introduced by Julius Caesar in the first century BC that January and February were added. The Julian calendar remained the predominant calendar in Europe through the sixteenth century, until it was amended to the Gregorian calendar we still use today.
