A crazy Frenchman by the name of Philippe Petit walked a tightrope between the towers of The World Trade Center back in 1974. He crossed the wire not once, but eight times.

They finally threatened to call a helicopter outfitted with a grappling hook. Learn the circus arts and put on a spectacle of your own, just apply for the proper permits beforehand.
