From http://salwen.com/apple.html, "The Big Apple" originated in the 30's and 40's post-depression jazz era when there was a popular venue in Manhattan and a swing club both named "Big Apple." The tag, forgotten by the 1970's, was revived by Charles Gillett, head of the New York Convention & Visitors Bureau in an effort to attract more tourists to the city mostly known for its "blackouts, strikes, street crime and occasional riots. What could be a more wholesome symbol of renewal than a plump red apple?" (salwen.com).
Cheers guys. Karl, looks like a good time. Kat, so did Tulsa.

I <3 New York. There is no other place in the country like it. Your pictures make me want to visit it again soon.

Ha, ha, ha, Blake. You're funny. An interesting bit of info: Kat kept yelling answers at the TV last night to rhetorical questions. Yelling. :)
