  • Brooke: Most days I get stopped by somebody

  • for my legs or my height, somebody just telling me 'you are tall, you have long legs' and

  • COMM: New Yorker Brooke Banker is making huge

  • strides in the world of modelling, with the longest legs in the Big Apple, at a whopping

  • Brooke: I generally work out about four to

  • five times a week I'd say, I mix it up, I do yoga, some spinning, I like to be outdoors.

  • COMM: And with a growing fan club, the future

  • looks bright for the longest legs in New York.

  • Brooke: The attention is fun and it's been

  • really exciting, but I don't really seek any kind of records.

Brooke: Most days I get stopped by somebody
