The two closest subway stations in New York City, Cortelyou and Beverly Road, are just one block apart in Flatbush, Brooklyn. Runner Adam Devine saw this short distance as the perfect opportunity to create a challenge. He decided to see if he could depart the subway at Cortelyou and run to Beverly Road in time to get back on. He ran the distance in 81 seconds, but the subway train made it in 67.
