Balancing Act is Fair Weather Fun
Philippe Petit gives a new generation a lesson in the fine art of balancing. Petit, who rose to fame after his extraordinary 1974 wire walk between the World Trade Center's Twin Towers, visited Cold Spring as a surprise guest at the Philipstown Depot Theatre's showing of the film Man on Wire, which documents his feat.
