Feats of bravery

Nik Wallenda has done it again with another death-defying act on the high-wire.

He has conquered a canyon known as Little Colorado Gorge on the Little Colorado River, land of the Navajo Nation, located near Cameron, Arizona. He walked 1,500 feet above the Little Colorado River Gorge, which was no less than phenomenal.

He now wants to walk across from the Empire State Building to the Chrysler building which is 4,000 feet. This is a most remarkable undertaking if he gets permission.

But I have a better suggestion — he should walk across Queens Boulevard, which is known as the “Boulevard of Death.”

Now that would be really scary and dangerous. I say to Nik Wallenda, go for it!
