Window Washer In New York City Works Without A Safety Harness (VIDEO)

A brave, or reckless, window washer in New York City was caught on video working high above a Manhattan street without a safety harness.

The YouTube user who uploaded the video describes:

The unknown workman was pictured with no safety equipment as he cleaned the tenth floor windows ...Passers-by watched from the Manhattan street below and from neighboring buildings as he fearlessly perched on the ledge with not even a rope to protect him.The unknown workman was seen climbing out of an open window and holding onto just the wall for support. When he was finished with one window, he shuffled along the outside of the building to wash the next.
