The Big Apple
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Would you like to go to New York City? Did you know that more people live in New York City than in any other city in the United States? You may know it as "the Big Apple." That is just one of its nicknames. It is also called "Gotham" and "the city that never sleeps."
 
2     If you go there, you can visit many famous tourist sites. You can go to the Empire State Building. It is one of the tallest buildings in the world. You can ride an elevator to the very top of the building. The view from the 102nd floor is awesome!
 
3     You might like to see the Brooklyn Bridge. The bridge was built more than 125 years ago. It was once the longest bridge in the world.
