Philippe Petit is the French high-wire artist who became an international sensation for his tightrope walk between the Twin Towers.  That event was chronicled in the film Man on Wire.  Now, Supreme, the sixteen-year-old bastion of downtown skate culture, has some video of Petit a bit closer to ground.
