    9/17/2014: The "King of the Highwire" says his upcoming tightrope walk over the city of Chicago will be his most challenging ever. NBC 5's LeeAnn Trotter reports. (Published Wednesday, Sept. 17, 2014)

    The managers of two Chicago apartment buildings are telling residents to watch their step while tightrope walker Nik Wallenda practices his craft next month.

    The 35-year-old daredevil plans two Chicago tightrope walks to be broadcast live on the Discovery Channel on Nov. 2. The first walk will stretch more than two city blocks on an uphill 15-degree angle from one high-rise to another above the Chicago River.

    The second walk will go from one of two Marina Towers buildings to the other.

    Marina City Towers management is warning residents it won't tolerate any shenanigans. They include "yelling, loud music or other disturbing sounds," the use of drones and grilling.

    Wallenda has walked across Niagara Falls and the Little Colorado River Gorge in Arizona in the past two years.
