On August 7, 1974, French funambulist, aerialist and street performer Philippe Petit and three friends, posing as construction workers, began their evening ascent of the World Trade Center's Twin Towers with a 440-pound cable and equipment, prepared to carry out their clever but dangerous scheme to secure the wire. The pacing of the narrative is as masterful as the placement and quality of the oil-and-ink paintings. Adapted for Brooklyn Blowback by David Kay, MLS.
