Nik Wallenda walks high wire above D'Youville campus to celebrate opening of their new HUB facility

The internationally known daredevil was on campus for the grand opening of the new HUB facility.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — You probably remember where you were when you watched Nik Wallenda's international tightrope walk over Niagara Falls on June 15, 2012. 

It's been nine years, almost to the day, since the daredevil completed that death-defying stunt. 

Now he's back in Western New York for another unbelievable act to celebrate the grand opening of D'Youville's new Health Professionals HUB facility. 

Wallenda walked across a 320-foot wire from the top of the Montante Library building on D'Youville's campus to the top of the new HUB building. The wire is 5/8 inches in width and it is the longest high-wire walk ever in the City of Buffalo. 

The HUB will provide residents of Buffalo's West Side community with primary care services and D'Youville students with real-life training for careers in health care.
