Why is New York referred to
as "the Big Apple?"

Jazz musicians coined the phrase about 65 years ago. They referred to the "Big" Apple (vs. all the other apples) as the "big-time gig" in New York. They believed that New York was the place to perform and that if they could make it there, they could make it anywhere.
