Big Apricot (summary)
New York City is "the Big Apricot" in a Superman comic where the city is also called "Metropolis."


Wikipedia: Metropolis (comics)
Over the years, Metropolis' features have greatly changed in the comics; however, Metropolis is always presented as being a world class city on the same caliber as New York City or Chicago, Illinois. It is often referred to as The Big Apricot just as New York City is nicknamed as The Big Apple.
