  2. 2. The Dakota Building in New York City is home to some of the most interestingand saddest tales. Marking the last moments of John Lennon’s life, andobtaining large numbers of well-known names, The Dakota has stood foralmost 130 years now. First constructed in 1884, The Dakota was and still isused as an apartment building for patrons of Manhattan. It is unknownexactly why the name Dakota was chosen, but many believe it was related todesigner Edward Clark’s fascination with names of the new western states andterritories.

Eventhough The Dakota islocated in the UpperWest Side of today’sManhattan, it was onceconsidered to be part ofa lower-endneighborhood in the1800s. In fact, TheDakota was built toretain more prominenttenants. Someremarkable tenantnames include, JudyGarland, James Madden,Connie Chung, JohnLennon and LeonardBernstein.
  4. 4. The Dakota is also known for its grand floor plan and architecturalfeatures. So well-known for these things, the building is often referredto in many stories and films for locational purposes.
