What is the Big Apple? I watched our local soap last year which was about 2 couples visiting New York. Now, I wonder what the Big Apple is.

I believe "The Big Apple" is referring to New York City.

I'm so dumb. I should have researched before asking. I had a read on wikipedia and it stated that New York has 3 known nicknames: The Big Apple, Gotham and "the city that never sleeps".

They say a New York minute is fast because the way the city is moving. You need to be on your toes when you go they.

And what do you reckon does "the city that never sleeps" mean? People never get to rest even during working hours?

Must learn American culture.

Its means that basically the city has something going on all the time, Now Las Vegas is the city that never sleeps.
