New York has long been known the world over as the “Big Apple”. The term was coined by touring jazz musicians from the 1930’s who used the word “apple” as a slang expression for any town or city they were performing in. New York was always considered the big city and jazz musician’s came from all over to play there because of the widely held belief that making it in New York meant that you had really made the big time. So to play in New York was to play in the Big Apple.
