The Day John Lennon Died


Taking a closer look at the day of John Lennon's death

December 8th, 2010 marks the 30th anniversary of the day John Lennon was shot outside of the Dakota on Manhattan's West Side. Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival at St Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital a short time later.

On this week's Cityscape, former New York City Mayor Ed Koch shares his memories of that day and we talk with the author of a new book that explores the day John Lennon died in great detail.
