ARTISTIC CRIME OF THE CENTURY

In 1978, Frenchman Philippe Petit perpetuated what was since called the “artistic crime of the century” when he walked the sixty one meters (200 feet) between the twin towers of the World Trade Center on a tight rope, more than 400 meters (1,300 feet) above the street.  

This was no mere whim; this stunt took years of planning.  Petit snuck into the towers to do research wearing the disguise of construction workers and office employees, forged identification cards, and even did aerial reconnaissance.  On the morning of August 7, Petit and his co-conspirators used a bow and arrow to pass increasingly larger ropes across the chasm until they strung up the steel cable he would walk on for 45 minutes, passing back and forth between the buildings eight times.  It was a spell binding routine; Petit laughed gleefully as he ran, bounced, and sat on the wire curtsying to the police officers massing on the rooftops.  Eventually, he was warned a helicopter was coming for him, and the falling rain caused him to turn himself in.  The incident brought much-needed good publicity to the newly build World Trade Center, which had been seen as an eyesore.  Charges against Petit were dropped in exchange for a community service act for children in Central Park--a high wire walk over Turtle Pond.  He has since gone on to write a series of books and perform all over the world, including more than a dozen times in New York City.

ELEVATOR RIDE FROM HELL

The skyline of New York was born from the elevator; without it, buildings more than a few stories tall would be impractical.  And despite what the television and movies would have you believe, elevators are extremely safe.  However, they are rather finicky contrivances, and it is not uncommon for one to get stuck.  Usually, some minor mechanical issue is to blame and is fixed within minutes.  But in 1999, New Yorker Nicholas White experienced a claustrophobic’s worst nightmare when the elevator he was riding became stuck for 41 hours.

White, who worked in the McGraw-Hill building in Manhattan’s Rockefeller Center, was a production manager for Business Week.  He was working late one Friday evening when he decided to take a smoke break.  He rode the elevator down, had a cigarette, and was attempting to return to the 43rd floor when his elevator became stuck.  White attempted to use the intercom and activate the alarm.  There was a camera in the elevator, and he expected security personnel to rescue him shortly.  No one came to help.  He paced relentlessly, smoking up his cigarettes.  After a while, he pried open the doors only to see a cinderblock wall.  Eventually, he was forced to urinate into the elevator shaft.  

After a while, he laid down to sleep on the filthy carpet.  When no one came, he attempted to access the escape hatch on the top of the elevator, only to find it locked.  Hours passed in a kind of delirium, and White completely lost track of time.  Eventually, a guard discovered his presence, and he was released on Sunday afternoon, 41 hours after he’d been trapped.  The sped-up video of White’s ordeal has become a You Tube sensation, garnering over eight million views.  

White quit his job and filed a $25 million lawsuit against the building and elevator company.  After years, he settled for an undisclosed sum that was a tiny fraction of what he was looking for, allegedly in the low six figures.  He claims to regret his decision to quit his job, and, as of 2010, reportedly worked at a sporting goods store.
