New York City. First given to NYC by Washington Irving in the early 19th century magazine Salmagundi.
"Mr. Mayor, can I say something in your honor?
Yesterday in Central Park they got the jogger.
Ok, let's get the confusion straight in Ghetto Gotham...
Things are getting serious, kumbaya,
On the mountain Satan offer me Manhattan take me Jah Jah."
--The Fugees, The Beast
