Welcome to Answers on the Streets: Episode 5! Many cities have their original nicknames or are known for something special. Chicago is called the Windy City, Las Vegas is Sin City, and of course New York City is the Big Apple. The others make sense, but we wanted to ask you: Why is NYC nicknamed after a fruit?

Question: Why is NYC called the Big Apple?
Episode 4 Winner
Congrats to Kiki for Episode 4’s Best Answer. Here’s her answer:
You can start preventing a hangover the moment you start drinking. Pace yourself. Sprinkle snacks throughout the night. Alternate alcoholic beverages with nonalcoholic ones (especially water). Don’t keep drinking right up until you hit the hay. Stop drinking. Have something to eat. Have something to drink besides alcohol. (Water is a good bet, but I have found I’m in the clear even if I just have milk or soda or something.) It doesn’t hurt to take a couple Ibuprofens before you go to bed, if you think you’re likely to be hung over the next day. Then sleep late the next day (sleep through it) if you can.
