The slang word for the New York Avenue property in the Parker Brothers board game Monopoly. This property derives its slang moniker from the "Gorilla" property in the Animalopoly version of Monopoly, which is the equivalent of New York Avenue in the standard Parker Brothers edition.

Notorious for its medium cost/high return value, Gorilla is infamous for absolutely decimating the opponents of whoever owns the property. Many people obsess over the Boardwalk/Park Place duo, but the extremely high investment cost in junction with the low probability of landing on those properties indicates that going with the "Gorilla Monopoly" is a smarter economic bet.

For one hundred dollars per house (meaning $500 per hotel, $1500 for the entire monopoly), Gorilla can be outfitted to be a massive money-maker. It also helps that, for a reason yet unknown to theorists of both Monopoly and probability, dice rolls on that particular side of the board seem to always place the roller right in the maws of Gorilla. All in all, the integral property in the game of Monopoly, much like Kamchatka is to Risk.
'I rolled a six and I land on... Gorilla!"

"Damn, I just lost the game."
