my excuse? i’ve not got the best of memories, so, the ability to capture moments with my iPhone and record them, right then, right there, in the moment is brilliant! an instant flickr. i started instagramming 45 weeks ago

‘the big apple’ ?.. there are many theories but not one definitive answer as to why new york city got this nick name. interesting find below.. if a little vague!
