New York finally gets a rock n’ roll hall of fame that’s better than the Hard Rock Café. An outpost of Cleveland’s larger Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, The Rock Annex will house exclusive hall of fame pieces like Bruce Springsteen’s 1957 Chevy. With over 25,000 square feet, this rock museum houses an important collection of music history that NYC is no doubt a large part of. Their first exhibition is Revolution Rock: The Story of the Clash. The museum opens today. One of the best affordable Vietnamese restaurants in the city, Nha Trang is right near the downtown courthouse, making it a high volume place. Despite that, the food is great and the Pho (rice noodle soup) dishes are $5 and under. An hip and eclectic place for drinks, the Knitting Factory is also a music venue. The drinks here aren’t expensive and the crowd is fun and artsy. One of the best taqueria’s in the city, the Mexican food here is authentic and to die for. While tacos will set you back $3, plates are in the $6 to $7.25 range.
