“I think New York has reached the point where it can finally be called York”

“I think New York has reached the point where it can finally be called York” is a jocular line that is similar to other lines used about other “new” places, including “New Jersey” and “New Mexico.” The one-line saying was tweeted by Peter Serafinowicz on September 16, 2010.
