More than two years ago, in February 2014, Tim Burke broke the record by hitting 55 green lights in a row. When Noah Forman, a NY taxi driver heard about it, he took it upon himself to beat that record. Just a month later, in March 2014, Noah was able to hit over 100 consecutive green lights.
But he didn’t stop there. Determined to best his own record, in December 2016, he did it again at about 03:30 in the morning, this time hitting 240 green lights!
According to Forman, he drove from Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem to Washington Square Park in downtown Manhattan, then back up to 59th street, across to Second Avenue, and back downtown to the Bowery at Prince Street. (the article continues after the ad)
