  1. This picture was taken on the World Trade Center south tower. The spot Jamie’s pointing to is where aerialist Philippe Petit strung a tightrope and walked across the gap to the north tower in the early 70s. It’s blurry in the photo, but to the left of Jamie’s fingertip is where Petit later painted a picture of a stick figure walking a tightrope and signed his name on the beam where he anchored the wire. The picture & signature were still visible when I went there in the late 90s.


Tell us a story.
