Yoko Ono, the Japanese-American artist and widow of John Lennon, has left her home in New York City after fifty years and moved to a farm near upstate New York. The farm was purchased by John Lennon in the early 1970s, shortly before his death.
The move marks the end of a long era in Ono’s life, as she and Lennon had lived in the city since their marriage in 1969. The couple famously lived in The Dakota, an iconic building on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Ono had continued to live in the building after Lennon’s death in 1980.
The farm is located in the town of Dutchess County, about 90 miles north of New York City. The property was originally purchased by Lennon in 1971 and was used as a retreat for the couple and their son, Sean. The property was then sold and re-purchased by Ono in the mid-1990s.
The move to the farm is a major shift for Ono, who had been an active member of the New York City art and music scenes for decades. Ono had been a fixture at many of the city’s most prominent galleries, museums, and music venues, and had been a major force in the city’s avant-garde art movement.
Ono’s move to the farm is a sign of her desire to live in a more peaceful and secluded setting. The farm is located in a rural area of New York, surrounded by forests and rolling hills. Ono has said that she is looking forward to the peace and quiet of the area, as well as the opportunity to reconnect with nature.
Ono’s move to the farm is a bittersweet moment for fans of the couple. Lennon and Ono’s time in New York City was a period of immense creativity and energy, and their move to the farm marks the end of an era. However, Ono’s move is also a sign of her desire to find a more peaceful and secluded home, and to continue to honor Lennon’s memory.
