BIG APPLE

The 'Big Apple' got its name in the 1920s from the horse racing tracks in New York City and its surrounding area. There were many big money races at these race tracks, and an 'apple' was something desirable - hence the big money tracks had a 'big apple'. Late in the 1920s jazz musicians started to use the term for New York City as a whole, and the term spread gradually. In the 1970s the city used the term extensively in a tourism campaign, and this revived and spread it's use to the rest of the world.
