Where in Brooklyn to make a good Brooklyn photo?

I want to make a photograph that depicts/evokes 'Brooklyn' as a wedding gift for someone who grew up there. I don't want to use the Brooklyn Bridge (too common) or the Botanical Garden (she wanted to have her wedding there but it fell through). Interior or exterior recommendations are equally welcome.

If you were this photograph, where would you be, and who would have taken you?

LostArtFilter: Does this image sound familiar to anyone? It's a photograph of someone blowing into one end of a rolled up newspaper, and there is a bouquet of flowers emerging from the other end. I'm pretty sure the background is just white. [more inside]

Photograph Reproduction Methods

For many years I beat my self up because my photographs did not approach the quality that I saw in magazines. This stopped when I was assigned to repair and maintain an offset printing press. I saw the offset being a four color (five if you factor the brilliance of the paper) mechanical process while my photographs were being done in a single or three color chemical process. The printer told me that images that were to be offset rather that darkroom printed had to be slightly overexposed. When a chemically processed photograph was placed beside its' offset printed twin, they showed two very different images of an identical subject. Is a magazine photograph a true photograph or is it really something else? Can a magazine illustration accurately portray what a photograph from a negative looks like? Does this question exist with digital photography? Please discount duotone and tritone B&W printing. I have been trying to wrap my head around this for years and the question still troubles me.

photographic inspiration

I'm looking for inspiration. The subject is band/musical artist photographs... not live images, but portraits and art shots that accompany articles and are used for band promotion. Can anyone recommend some photographers, websites or individual images for me to check out? (I already know about Annie Leibovitz, Anton Corbijn, Steve Gullick and Chris Buck, but feel free to point out particular shots by these artists that you admire anyhow.)

University Restaurant in Spain

I need to get a high-resolution (1 MB) photograph of any university restaurant in Spain for an article I'm writing. I had a contact fall through on me at the last minute and need something fast. I've searched some image data banks online and have drawn a blank. Anyway, I'd prefer something original, not stock. Any ideas? I thought about paying a student a bit of money to take a photograph. Problem is, I don't know any university students in Spain.
