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

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

New York is called the big apple blue way I dont know. But I bet admin would know.

I'm so dumb.:frustrated: I should have researched before asking.:frustrated: 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".

Melissa 12-13-2006 07:04 AM

Yup, those are the nicknames that it has.

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.
