      New York City has been called many things— “The Great American Melting Pot(大熔炉)” and “The City that Never Sleeps(不夜城)”—but its most famous nickname is “The Big Apple.” Why is the city called “The Big Apple”?
  According to historians(历史学家), the city was not officially(正式地) named “The Big Apple” until 1971. The nickname was first used in a book The Wayfarer in New York(《旅人在纽约》). It was written by Edward Martin in1909. In the book, a tree is used to compare to the national economy(国家经济), and New York City is the big apple on the tree. Do you know why? The city receives the largest amount of the nation’s money every year.
  In the late1920s and early 1930s, New York City’s jazz musicians(爵士音乐家) began to call New York City “The Big Apple.” There is an old saying in show business, “There are many apples, but only one Big Apple. When you choose New York, you choose the big one.”
  In1971, in order to get more people to visit New York City, the city officials(官员) used this nickname. Since then, the city has officially been nicknamed “The Big Apple.”
