Around Manhattan Record Run

For those of you that don’t know, the island of Manhattan is not really all that big. At about 13.5 miles long, 2.5 miles wide and playing home to over 8 million people, this big block of land is one of the most densely populated places on the planet. It also has everything you could ever want with those things being available to you 24/7/365. Want steak and lobster at 4 am? No problem. How about a full service laundromat at 11:48 pm… hell, that’s not a problem either. What if however you want a few stretches of open roadway that will allow you to circumnavigate the island at full speed? Well guess what… that’s available too, it’s just not recommended. That however didn’t stop a few guys from a group called the Corporate Broadcasting Company from trying to break the “One Lap Around New York Record” that was supposedly set by transcontinental speedmiester Alex Roy back in 2001. Roy’s record was apparently in the neighborhood of 27 minutes, but that hasn’t been confirmed since we’ve never seen any video evidence. The guys from the CBC however did manage to film their entire run and well, it’s pretty damn impressive. Click through to check it out.
