Record-breaking aerialist Nik Wallenda walked between two skyscrapers 600 feet above downtown Chicago, with one of the walks being a blindfolded one.

Wallenda who is a seventh-generation aerialist walked between Marina City’s West Tower which started at 588 feet high, and crossed above the Chicago River to the Leo Burnett Building in under seven minutes, the Leo Burnett Building stood 671 feet above the street.

For the second part, he walked back over to the West Tower, then crossed over to the East Tower blindfolded in just one minute and twenty seconds.
