The famous tightrope walk was 37 years ago

The famous tightrope walk at the World Trade Center took place August 7, 1974. It’s been in the news lately because of the upcoming tenth anniversary of 9-11. Between the buildings’ construction and demise, there were few attention-getting events at the WTC. It’s easy to feel nostalgic about Philippe Petit’s feat. See the documentary Man on Wire if you haven’t yet.
