Distance from downtown Toronto to downtown Brampton, as the crow flies: 31 kilometers (about 19 miles).

Distance from downtown Boston to downtown New York (Manhattan), as the crow flies: 190 miles (about 308 kilometers).

But, hey, what's an order of magnitude between friends?


Bonus reference:
Distance from Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum (current soon-to-be-former home of the New York Islanders) to Madison Square Garden (home of the New York Rangers), as the crow flies: ~21 miles (about 34 kilometers).

But "it's not Toronto."
