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.

Cochrane will perform the skywalks between the hotels daily beginning June 17, 2005. The daily walks are a prelude to the "Skylon Tower" skywalk beginning July 1st which will begin at a height of 400 feet atop the Niagara Fallsview Casino and traverse a distance of 1,800 feet where Jay will step off the wire on top of the Skylon Tower, more than 600 feet high.
