“Today, Nik Wallenda was given the green light by the Niagara Parks Commission to cross Niagara Falls from the United States to Canada on an 1,800-foot tightrope. Now, nearly a year after I authored legislation in New York to clear the way for this amazing feat, Mr. Wallenda’s dream will become a reality.
“This walk isn’t just a stunt – it’s sure to bring big benefits to Erie County. The traverse across the falls will bring back a renewed sense of excitement for our region and boost tourism in Western New York. Nik Wallenda’s showcase will help highlight our unique culture of the region.”
