Tomorrow marks what would have been John Lennon's 70th birthday, and to mark it, we have three exclusive clips from LENNONYC, a PBS "American Masters" documentary that examines Lennon's last years living in New York City. In these sections of the movie, which airs in full on PBS on November 22, you see footage of Lennon, Yoko Ono and Andy Warhol hanging out at Lennon talks about first moving to Greenwich Village; Geraldo Rivera on the news report of his that inspired Lennon and Ono to stage the One to One benefit concert in 1972; and Lennon discussing, as he Ono walk through Central Park, why he moved to New York City after the break up of the Beatles. "I'm known enough to keep my ego floating, but unknown enough to get around," Lennon says of NYC life.
