Man Climbs Light Post, Shuts Down Times Square after ‘GMA’ Alicia Keys Concert

The concrete jungle where dreams are made of turned into a nightmare for the NYPD today. But you know the tourists loved it.

After Alicia Keys performed on “Good Morning America” this morning from outside their Times Square studios, a man climbed up a light post and wouldn’t come down. The stunt shut down the crossroads of the world for a while. NYPD officers brought in support personnel, and blew up the big jump bag, and finally coaxed him down.
