On January 25, the founder of an investment company fell to his death after jumping out of a rooftop bar in Manhattan. New York Post.

A 46-year-old man jumped out of Bar 54 at the Hyatt Centric Times Square New York hotel in front of at least two witnesses around 18:30 p.m. He fell into the street, his death was pronounced on the spot.

Two people at the rooftop bar told police that the man had jumped off the building. The woman called 911 and reported hearing a loud noise.

The death is being investigated as a suspected suicide, an NYPD spokesman said.

In 2008, the police twice came to the house of the deceased because of domestic quarrels with his wife. One of the quarrels was related to finances. Court records show that the couple filed for divorce on Tuesday (January 24).

Sources said the man was the founder and partner of a Connecticut investment firm, but police have yet to release his name.

“We are truly appalled by the situation that happened today,” said Tom Blundell, General Manager of Hyatt Centric Times Square.

“We work closely with local authorities. The safety and well-being of all our colleagues, hotel guests and visitors to Bar 54 remains our top priority. Due to this tragic incident, we will be closing the open bar area,” Blundell added.

This is the second suicide in this bar in less than four months.

In October 2022, Queens model Elizabeth Gaglewski jumped out of Bar 54 and fell onto the 27th floor balcony. The staff tried to stop the 26-year-old woman when she was standing on the ledge, but she still jumped.

The family remembered Gaglevski as "sweet and loving".

“She was just a good person. A sweet and loving, caring child,” her uncle Tony Smith said last year.
