Two men climbed the 52 storey Times Building in Manhattan within hours of each other and were arrested by NYPD cops waiting for them on the roof. The first climber was Alain Robert and was a green activist. He unfurled a banner that read ” Global warming kills more people than a 9/11 every week”. After sometime another man started his ascent up the building. A ton of people and live TV cameras watched the second man make his climb. The second man showed signs of tiredness during his climb and the cops actually encouraged him to finish the ascent so that they arrest him when he made it to the top. The Second man was identified as 32-year-old Renaldo Clarke from Brooklyn.

Here are a couple of videos of the climb:
