Big Apple Diner (Whitehall, NY, 1987-present)

The Big Apple Diner in the hamlet of Low Hampton, at 11850 US-4 near Whitehall, New York, opened in 1987. The name “Big Apple” is because the building was rented from the Vermont Apple Company. The Big Apple Diner is not located in New York City and is not New York City-themed.

WHITEHALL—The Big Apple Diner, on Route 4 north of Whitehall, is open for business.
Nancy and Dick Gould and their partner, Lila Bartlett, are renting the building from the Vermont Apple Co., which is right behind the diner. The business, which opened earlier this month, is managed by Shelley Paddock, who also doubles as the morning waitress and short-order cook.
In addition to serving food, the diner also doubles as an outlet for Vermont Apples.

Outside of Whitehall, NY there is a diner called The Big Apple Diner. Now, it was neither shaped like an apple nor in NYC. What’s with name?
