A term only used by tourists and new people moving into NYC that think they are cool when in reality, they are not and try to use the term to show their non-existent coolness. They quickly realize that real New Yorkers don't say this term when one gives them a dirty look and that NYC consists of 5 boroughs and not just Manhattan.

Nickname for New York City. Originally termed by a newspaper man to describe Broadway, as in the big apple to which everyone aspired. Eventually came to mean the entire New York City.
The first time I saw "Phantom of the Opera" was on the Big Apple (Broadway) in the Big Apple (NYC).
