Wallenda outlines plan for N Falls walk
From WIVB Channel 4 in Buffalo (including a video):
Nik Wallenda presented new plans to the Niagara Parks Commission, this week.
The proposal outlined his exact path across the falls. Still, he’s walking a fine line with the Canadians and some in Niagara Falls.
Niagara Falls historian Paul Gromoziak said, “Oh my God, it’s ridiculous to even contemplate such a thing! Leave the falls alone! If you want to walk on a rope, go some place else.”
Gromoziak is outraged over Wallenda’s proposed stunt. Wallenda wants to cross the falls, on a tight rope, no wider than a nickel. Gromoziak says the state has reneged on its promise to keep the falls “natural” consenting to Wallenda’s walk.
“And now by permitting this, this stunt to be performed, in the park, it’s opening the flood gates, I think, to many things similar to that come,” argued Gromoziak.
