It was a Geroni-no-no.
Authorities are poised to charge four daredevils in a dangerous, predawn skydive from 1 World Trade Center six months ago, a source told the Daily News.
Word of the charges came on the heels of a major security breach at 1 World Trade Center last week when a New Jersey teen crawled through a hole in a fence and managed to reach the roof of the tower, 1,368 feet above street level.
