Illusionist David Blaine is planning to wow New Yorkers this Halloween (31OCT05) by staging a high-wire stunt.

The show stopping star, who wowed Londoners in 2003 by living in a glass box above the River Thames without food for 44 days, will walk between two points high above Manhattan.

He says, "Basically, it's something that's been done in the circuses, based on the old high-wire acts. It's like family entertainment, this one."
