Daredevil Arrested For Climbing Upper West Side Skyscraper

Daredevil and serious climbing enthusiast Justin Casquejo was arrested on Monday for scaling one of the unfinished skyscrapers at Waterline Square (on West 61st Street) back in March.

The building he chose was Two Waterline Square, which stands 38 stories tall.

A video shows him crazily hanging off of a construction crane and dangling his legs off the edge on the morning of March 18th.

I don’t know about you, but watching this makes my hands and feet sweat like nobody’s business.


Casquejo is due back in court on December 11th and his bail has been set at $5,000.

The mischievous little rascal was also busted for scaling One World Trade Center when he was just 16.  He’s 19 now, so I guess he’s decided it’s worth the risk. I’m not sure how much he’s making from his Youtube videos, but between those dollars and the cult following he’s acquired, or just his passion for danger and views, he’s apparently decided it’s worth it to continue on his vertical journey.
