NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- Imagine a John Lennon stamp.

Imagine no more. 

On Friday, the US Post Office unveiled a John Lennon forever stamp at the Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park.

The stamp is the latest in a series of music icons stamps and features a 1974 photo of Lennon taken by rock music photographer Bob Gruen for the 'Walls and Bridges' album.

Lennon's widow Yoko Ono and their son Sean was at the dedication ceremony. 

"What makes America beautiul is the open arms that we have in accepting people from around the world that want to participate in this great democracy," Sean said in explaining why his father loved living in New York.

Before the stamp was unveiled, video played of Lennon frolicking in Central Park.
