A Dude Walked a Tight Rope Between the World Trade Center Towers

One of my kids and I read a book together last night about a dude that walked a tight rope stretched between the World Trade Center Towers in New York City.

That’s right.  His name is Philippe Petit and he’s a Frenchman who is obviously crazy.  He pulled the feat off back in 1974 while the twin buildings were still under construction.  If you don’t believe me, take a look at the video below.

Yeah, well, I guess they did make a motion picture about this back in 2008, but I’m a little behind the times.
