Notes: The final "Imagine" filming occurred today back at New York`s Battery Park where more "Whisper Pieces" were filmed (damn they loved this skit).
Following this they took a ferry to Staten Island, filming themselves poignantly looking at the twin towers and "saluting" the Statue of Liberty on the way.
Once on Staten Island they made their way down to South Beach were a lot more filming was done sitting on a bench looking out to sea, playing in the surf,
barely writing their names etc in the sand, running towards each other and finally kissing and walking out along a stone pier which concluded the "Imagine" TV special as the credits rolled.
