In Norman Rockwell's suburbia, kids climbed trees and told ghost stories. But in modern places like New York City, life is different. Now, kids climb skyscrapers and share videos about their own death wishes.
Case in point: two young urban explorers recently scaled the facade of New York City's 432 Park Avenue, an apartment tower that will reach a whopping 1,379ft into the sky. Upon its completion, the complex will be the tallest residential building in North America, not to mention the second tallest building in NYC, right after the Freedom Tower.
Once they climbed around 1,000ft, 15-year-old "Night Shift" (real name unknown) and 17-year-old Demid Lebedev recorded a vertigo-inducing video and photos from over the building's ledge, though unlike this bunch of skyscraper-climbing students in Hong Kong, no selfies were taken.
