If only more readers were this dedicated to print newspapers. Early Saturday morning, authorities pulled down a man who was scaling the New York Times’ flagship building in mid-town Manhattan.
The man told people on the ground he was looking for a copy of the newspaper, according to the New York Post.
The outside of the New York Times (NYSE: NYT) building is composed of horizontal slats which makes it easy to climb.
Today’s deranged newspaper fan only made it to the fifth floor but in 2008 two other men reportedly climbed all fifty-two stories.
The man was taken for a psychiatric evaluation.
Media wags are already making cracks about scaling the New York Times’ paywall.
