How did Manhattan get The Little Apple® nickname?
Among the first settlers to Manhattan were pioneers with the backing of New York investors, who insisted settlers call their new community “Manhattan”. When the “Big Apple” nickname was dusted off for a 1970s NYC tourism campaign, a short while later Manhattan KS sought The Little Apple® moniker, circa 1977. The recognition is used to promote Manhattan as a tourism destination and north-central Kansas hub for conventions, economic development, industrial advancement and trade.
