The founder of an investment firm plunged to his death from a Manhattan rooftop Wednesday night, police and law enforcement sources said.
The 46-year-old man plunged from Bar 54 at the Hyatt Centric Times Square New York in front of at least two witnesses around 6:30 p.m., police and the sources said.
He landed on the street below and was pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
His death is being investigated as a suspected suicide, an NYPD spokesman said.
Sources said the man was a founder and partner of a Connecticut-based investment firm.
It is the second time in less than four months that a person has 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 the family.
