New York…For all the music landmarks. The main ones I’d like to see are:

  • The Dakota Building where John Lennon was shot and Strawberry Fields opposite the building where his tribute stands.
  • Bleeker Street in Brooklyn to see all the vintage shops and record stores.
  • The Apollo Theatre, where legends such as Jimi Hendrix and James Brown performed in its heyday.
