Travel Tidbit: New York City

New York, New York – one of the world’s most multilingual cities was my travel destination for the weekend. It was my first time in “the Big Apple” (one of New York’s nicknames). Because yes, not all Americans have been to New York! I attended a polyglot conference where I listened to some brilliant speakers cover topics like forensic linguistics (using linguistics to solve crimes), why we should all learn the language of our neighbors, different English dialects, and even a talk in French!

Check out the pictures I took on my quick 4-day trip:

Another┬áNew York nickname is “the City that Never Sleeps”, and you may also see it referred to just as NYC (New York City). And why is New York called the Big Apple as well? It has to do with horse racing and a horse’s favorite treat – the apple!
