1. Make a reservation if you’re planning to eat at the Hard Rock Cafe! It’s right on Time Square, which is one of the busiest parts of the city, so there’s often a long line to get a table.

The Rock Shop is spread over 1,800 square feet (167 square meters) of floor space, so there’s plenty to explore! Hard Rock Cafe | Photo: Benjamin Kraft CC-BY-SA 2.0
3. Make sure to stop and look at the merchandise - the Hard Rock Cafe New York has costumes worn by Madonna and Gwen Stefani, plus objects previously owned by John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Billy Joel, and Elvis Presley.
4. Look out for live music events! Many are free to attend (though you might want to make a dinner reservation to make sure you get in the door), and feature up and coming bands from all over the US.
