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.
