Second City

Those are the other two big ones.

Where I'm at now in Paw Paw it doesn't really have a famous well known name. They call the local car dealership "Two Paws Ford". I prefer to call it Squaw Paw.

Where I'm from originally , Clearwater, FL....back in the day it was reffered to as "Sparkling Clearwater". One of the commonly used jokes while I was growing up......If you saw someone wearing a pair of pants that they had outgrown especially if they were rapidly getting taller, You would say "This is Clearwater, not Highwater".

New York City: (As a whole)
New York, NY The City So Nice They Named It Twice
Gotham (my favorite one)
The Big Apple
The City That Never Sleeps
The Capital Of The World
Empire City

Brooklyn:
The Borough Of Churches
The Borough Of Trees
BK

Staten Island:
The Forgotten Borough (nickname doesn't really hold as much weight anymore)
The Borough of Parks

The Bronx:
The X
The BX
Boogie Down (or The Boogie Down)

Manhattan:
The City

Queens:
The Crescent Borough (It extends North, East, and South of Brooklyn in a crescent shape)
Q-Borough

Queens is heavily "neighborhood" focused unlike the rest of the boroughs so it has few nicknames for just Queens.

Queens Neighborhoods:
South Jamaica, Queens = Southside (That's where I live)
Far Rockaway, Queens = Far Rock or The Rock
Hollis, Queens = Northside

I know there's more for Queens (and its neighborhoods).

Newark: (Only like 5 miles west of Manhattan and 2 miles northwest of Staten Island)
Brick City

This is just off the top of my head, I know there's more for all of NYC.

Where I'm at now, Niles, MI, is officially known as the "City of 4 Flags," so called because it was owned by four countries several hundred years ago. It is just the Michigan side of South Bend, IN and isn't an actual city to itself. Niles, along with South Bend and surrounding areas, is known as "Michiana," a combination of Michigan and Indiana.

My hometown, Three Rivers, MI, is known as "T.R.," "3R," "Triple Ripple," and "Triple Creek."
