    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     alexbrown726 says he was standing with thousands of people in Niagara Falls, New York on June 15, watching Nik Wallenda walk across the Niagara Falls with a tight rope. 'We were watching him on the American side and to see him disappear into the mist was spectacular,' he says. He says Park Service for the Niagara Falls offered four thousand free tickets for people to watch the event, he and his wife were able to get a ticket and attend. Growing up in the Niagara Falls area, alexbrown726 says he has been tourism decline in the past twenty years and he hopes that a stunt like this can help bolster the area's tourism industry.
