Legendary highwire acrobat Nik Wallenda announced on “Good Morning America”Thursday that he and his sister will embark on a high wire walk 25 stories above New YorkCity’s Times Square on June 23rd.

“My family’s performance, back in 1928, here in the United States, was here in New York City,” Wallenda said. “I’ve always wanted to do something exciting and kind of maybe show the world that the Wallendas are still going strong.”

Wallenda’s death-defying stunts and high wire theatrics have earned the seventh generation wire walker the nickname the “King of the Wire.”
