      New York City has been called many things, some good, some not so much. But of all the names this great city gets, everyone recognizes the "Big Apple." Few, however, know why a city that never had a single apple tree wound up with its tasty nickname.

      The theories regarding the origin of the name are all over the place. Some are literal, such as the one that attributes it to the apple vendors who littered the streets during the Depression. Others are bawdy, referring to the girls at Madame Eve's renowned 19th century brothel at 42 Bond Street. (Was Adam a regular client?)

      But it was a sportswriter for the New York Morning Telegraph by the name of John J. Fitz Gerald who is probably most often credited with popularizing the nickname.

      Fitz Gerald heard it from two African-American stable boys at the New Orleans Fair Grounds in the early 1920s. At the time the slang used by jockeys and trainers referred to big money prizes as a "big apple." New York's racetracks offered big money, so New York was where the biggest apple could be found.

      Fitz Gerald began using the term in the title of his racing column, Around the Big Apple, on February 18, 1924. The term caught on with jazz musicians in the 1930s and '40s. There was even a dance named the Big Apple that became a hit. But it all fizzled out – until 1971, when the "I (love) NY" campaign to revitalize tourism brought "Big Apple" back as a way to make New York more shiny, polished, and approachable. The campaign is still running today, and the Big Apple looks better than ever.

      In 1904, The New York Times moved its offices and operation to Longacre Square. Once lined by brownstones, the square had deteriorated into a red-light district. The newspaper's new building was the second tallest in Manhattan and stood as a symbol for a new era. To celebrate, the Times held a New York's Eve event, and came up with an idea to commemorate the arrival of the new year: the ball drop ceremony. And Longacre became Times Square.
