“The Big Apple” Photo by VC Ferry

Why do they call New York City The Big Apple??

“In the late 1920s and early 1930s, New York City’s jazz musicians began referring to New York City as the “Big Apple.” An old saying in show business was “There are many apples on the tree, but only one Big Apple.” New York City being the premier place to perform was referred to as the Big Apple.”

How do ya like them apples?!! 😛 😛 😛
