Creative photography ideas in NYC in December for a total photography amateur looking to kill some time?

I'll be spending the week between Christmas and New Years in Brooklyn/NYC. I grew up and live near there, so I am familiar with everything and don't need to do any touristy stuff, I just want to walk around and take cool pictures. I am not a photographer, but I love taking pictures, and sometimes they come out pretty good. I have a decent point-and-shoot camera, but unfortunately, I lack creativity.
Can you come up with some photography themes/projects, or ideas of what would be cool to take pictures of? Bonus points if they are NYC-specific. I am not good at spotting things that would be good for a picture while walking around, I need to have an idea in my head so I can look for things related to that idea.
I saw this thread: http://ask.metafilter.com/80441/Photography-trips-in-NYC-area, but it doesn't have a lot of ideas, and I am looking less for specific things/places to take pictures of, and more for themes. Does that make sense?
This will be just for myself, not for any commercial use or blog or anything like that. I just need a hobby for a few days so I don't die of boredom.
Thanks for your help!
