Some stops in New York’s subways are pretty short (Beverley station and Cortelyou station, on the Q line in Brooklyn, are only about 500 feet apart), but the longest uninterrupted run between stations is in Queens on the A train‘s run between the Howard Beach/JFK Airport and Broad Channel stations in Queens. The distance between the stops is 3.5 miles long, almost 37 times as long as Beverly and Cortelyou.
