New York City and John Lennon have a pretty storied relationship together from his social and political activism to his anti-was campaign and much much more. Featured pieces on display include personal items like hand-written lyrics and artwork, photos, instruments, some of his fashion statements and that iconic â€œNew York Cityâ€ t-shirt as seen in this accompanying photo. 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. When you think of getting drinks, hitting the library is not the first thing that comes to mind but the Brandy Library may change your view. Thereâ€™s no books on the wall but plenty of spirits including a wide range of brandies, whiskies, rums, and much more in a laid back atmosphere. One of the best taqueriaâ€™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.
