NYC Themed Wedding

Hey everyone...I am so torn with what I want to do for favors! I am thinking something edible...because then I know people will definitely eat & enjoy it! Our "theme" is New York City....we love the city & it's also where we got engaged.  We're not doing too much NYC things...just centerpieces & music....so we thought maybe adding in a NYC themed favor would be cool.  I am having trouble thinking of a creative idea...I also don't wanna spend hundreds of dollars on favors.  I thought chocolate shaped like NYC monuments....but only found like 1 website that has these....
Does anyone have any creative, cost-friendly NYC ideas? 
Thanks!!

    Since NYC is known as the "big apple", how about an apple shaped chocolate with a red foil cover?

    Ohhh I like that idea! How could I word it...I don't wanna just say "Thanks for coming..." 
    I could say something about "Start spreading the news..."

    Hot nuts!  I moved to Cali from NYC last year, and I miss them sooo much.  They could be in little wax paper bags with your monogram on them too!  That's some authentic NYC.

    How about black and white cookies? Those are very NYC. You could write a cute description of the black and white cookie. Cute theme.  You could also do famous NYC places/photos as centerpiece (Name table 2 Central Park w/ a photo). That would be very affordable and a great talking point.

    Tweet? Me too! Have you checked out our My Real Wedding Gallery for ideas? Upload your photos here and be featured on The Knot!

    We are doing the exact centerpieces you described! haha...they are going to be actual photographs that me & my fiance took together! :) Since, we love photography & stuff.... cute idea with the black & white cookies--a little confused as to how that relates to NYC? Maybe I'm just not seeing it at the moment (I'm a little tired at the moment-haha).  Thanks :)

    It was a Seinfeld episode (I only know this because my fiance is a huge fan).

    "Start spreading the news, we married today. Thanks so much for being a part of it..." and leave it at that.  People will get it, it's cute, but it's not over the top cheesy!

    Agree with apple, black and white cookies (they have them in NYC delis/bakeries), something with a bagel theme (not quite sure how to make that a favor but it says NY to me...)
    For apples, maybe a candied apple?  Though might be kinda pricey
