Default Why is New York City called the "Big Apple?"

This is my first "question" post! Dare I aske this question? My 20 year old son has a friend from Germany (met on the net) here and she asked me "Why is New York City called the Big Apple?" I (originally from NY state) could not answer her. What is your take on this?
