Climbing the Trump Tower
Trump Tower has been a magnet for all types this year. From protesters to fans, the streets outside the building have seen their share of out-of-town visitors. The most famous came on the morning of August 10, when 19-year-old Stephen Rogata decided to climb up the outside of the 58-story building using nothing but suction cups. His goal was to "discuss an important matter" according to a video the Virginian posted hours before his attempt to summit the tower. Over the next three hours, networks cut to his slow-motion Spiderman climb, and the internet exploded with livestream videos of him as he evaded police and steadily went higher. He made it to the 21st floor before police corralled him, and sent him to Bellevue for psychiatric evaluation. Trump thanked the police on Twitter.
