NEW YORK CITY MIDTOWN UPPER WEST SIDE UPPER EAST SIDE THEATER DISTRICT GREENWICH VLG. DOWNTOWN HARLEM

 





New York City, "The Big Apple" is world famous. In the 1930's, jazz musicians expanded the name of a Harlem Nightclub, "The Big Apple", to include the whole neighborhood and the phrase eventually spread throughout the city. "The Big Apple" phrase resurfaced in the early 1970's and was successfully utilized to promote tourism by the New York Convention and Visitors Bureau. New York's street and place names reflect the nationalities of its settlers, from Dutch words like Harlem, Gramercy, and Brooklyn (after Breuckelen, a small town in the Utrect region); to American Indian names, (the word "Manhattan," was formerly "Manhatta"). German, Spanish, Hungarian, Russian, English, Yiddish, and Chinese words have all left their mark.
