No, I'm not looking for answers, I'm looking for questions!

I need to produce 20 questions about New York City for an informal quiz and I thought that maybe you chaps could help me out. :)
So I would be grateful for any assistance. Nothing TOO esoteric (remember these are Brits!); basic, and also quirky would be good.

I also need 10 iconic-type pictures, so a list of possible subjects would be good, then I can search for the images on the net.

Thank you in anticipation.

Thanks BB.

That first link provided just the tone I was looking for.

The answers were the google search description.

The famous Queensboro bridge shot from Woody Allen's Manhattan.

The 1969 Miracle Mets winning the pennant.

The Wonder Wheel from Coney Island.
