A Guinness World Records representative says Tuesday’s effort brought together more than 2,000 people. But Guinness said 5,000 or more needed to turn out for an official record. Lennon was assassinated in 1980 at his apartment building on Manhattan’s west side just across from the park. fox32chicago
