Crazy BASE Jump off the Freedom Tower

I don’t know about you guys, but jumping off a building or out of a perfectly good airplane isn’t exactly one of the things on my bucket list. I’ve never had a penchant for extreme adrenaline rushes. In fact the most exciting thing I’ve probably done has been Space Mountain in the Magic Kingdom.

Well, last September these guys decided it would be a good idea to get to the top of the Freedom Tower – the tallest building in NYC – and jump off of it. They were finally arrested last week but in the process they made a pretty awesome video of the whole thing.

A couple of take-aways:

1. NYC is gorgeous at night.

2. Jumping off a building is scary.
