Daredevil sits on wire over Times Square

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - A stuntman sat on a chair on a wire three stories above Times Square on Tuesday.

The spectacle caused by Bello Nock, who has spent most of his life as a stunt artist, while high above the 'crossroads of the world,' was to preview his attempt at an even bigger feat later this year.

"At the end of the summer I will perform 15 death defying stunts in 15 minutes," said Nock.

But before he gets to that, he invited fans to take a selfie with him on Tuesday. People can walk up about halfway along a bridge and snap a pic.

"It takes a lot of stamina and endurance. You’re constantly in that balance. I’m not relaxing that’s for sure," said Nock.

    A casino piano tuner in Atlantic City is fighting the state's attempt to seize his late parents' house as part of a redevelopment project connected to the closing Revel Hotel Casino. Charlie Birnbaum says the house in the shadow of the failed casino was his father's livelihood. He says he is attached to the home, even though his mother was killed there in 1998.
