Jay Cochrane, The Prince of the Air - South Brooklyn Internet Inc.
Jay Cochrane, the world's premiere high wire walker, completes his first skywalk of the summer in Niagara Falls, Canada, on Thursday, July 6, 2007 as he passes by the Skylon Tower. Cochrane will skywalk twice daily on the 1,000 foot long wire between his two specially made 200 foot tall towers (20 stories). In the ten-week schedule, Cochrane will walk over 20 miles on the wire. Called "Up Close and Personal with Jay Cochrane," the skywalks are an effort to secure permission for Cochrane to skywalk over Niagara Falls.

Jay Cochrane completes the first performance of Skywalk 2012, the Greatest Building to Building skywalk in North American history. Cochrane will grace the Niagara Falls skyline from the Skylon Tower (520 feet tall) to the top of the Hilton Hotel (581 feet tall) for the entire summer. At 1300 feet distance, he will cover approximately 20 miles on this wire in the 81 scheduled performances.
