An unidentified man fell to his death from a Times Square apartment building on Saturday morning, officials said.
The man was pronounced dead at the scene after the 6:50 a.m. incident at 43rd Street near 8th Avenue, the FDNY said.
“Somebody jumped? Jesus Christ!” said a stunned woman who answered the office phone four hours after the incident.
The woman only said that the property was “a residence”.
The 652-unit former The Times Square hotel, which opened in 1991, “combines durable, affordable housing and on-site supportive services for low-income and formerly homeless adults, those with serious mental illnesses and those living with HIV/AIDS,” according to the nonprofit Breaking Ground website.
Further information was not immediately available.
Two bellhops at the Westin Hotel across the street said the NYPD locked down the block while they investigated. They said the victim was a man but did not see him jump or fall.
An NYPD spokesman had no information.
