Ninja-in-training Ethan Swanson's latest video shows him jumping from a rooftop in the 1800 block of Sheffield, skirting down the angle of a neighboring roof, then landing feet-first in an outdoor spiral staircase.
But at least two of Swanson's earlier works took place a little closer to home.

Most stomach-churning, though, may be the 2013 video that shows Swanson scaling a construction crane above the now-completed Halsted Flats complex at 3740 N. Halsted. Once he's hundreds of feet up, Swanson dangles from the crane by one hand, with nothing but air between him and the asphalt of Halsted Street.
