One of the most famous and mysterious building in New York, the Dakota Apartments were built in 1884. Since then the building is known for ghost hauntings and is home to some of the most celebrated personalities in the world.

From John Lennon and Yoko Ono to Roberta Flack, Ruth Ford, Rosemary Clooney and Judy Garland, many artists have made the place their home. Apart from rejecting some other big names like Antonia Banderas and Carly Simon for residency, the apartments are most famous for being known as the place where John Lennon was shot in 1980. The place is also the setting for many novels like ‘The Baby-Sitters Club’, ‘Grendel’ and ‘The Hard Way’ and films like ‘Vanilla Sky’ and ‘Hana Yori Dango Returns’.

Visit the apartments to see the stunning Renaissance and Victorian architecture that gives the building its charm and adds to its prestigious presence.
