A while back, we watched a guy with perfect timing hit 55 green lights in a row in NYC. Now, driver Noah Forman has smashed that feat, driving through an insane 240 intersections with traffic lights without a single stop. Somebody needs to turn this into a video game.
For Improv Everywhere’s latest urban prank, they took advantage of the humid and oppressive Summer heat in a NYC subway station to turn it into a spa, complete with sauna and massage tables. We can imagine no place less relaxing.

Casey Neistat shot this eye-opening video of the devastation by riding bikes around NYC right in the midst of last week’s monster storm. He had to edit it at a Starbucks due to the power outage.
Every time we’ve been through NYC’s Lincoln Tunnel, it’s a parking lot, so we can only imagine that F1 driver David Coulthard sped through in the middle of the night when he hit it at 190mph.
