The founder of an investment firm plunged to his death from a Manhattan rooftop bar on Wednesday night, cops and law enforcement sources said.
The 46-year-old man plummeted from Bar 54 at the Hyatt Centric Times Square New York in front of at least two witnesses around 6:30 p.m., and was pronounced dead at the scene, police and sources said.
His death is being investigated as a suspected suicide, an NYPD spokesperson said.
Sources said the man was a founder and partner at a Connecticut-based investment company.
This is the second time in less than four months a person plunged from the same hotel bar.
In October, aspiring model Elizabeth Gaglewski, of Queens, fell from Bar 54 before hitting a 27th floor balcony, the NYPD said. The 26-year-old woman was remembered as “sweet and loving” by family.
