Man dies after falling to Washington Street

A man died yesterday in front of 440 Washington Street, at the corner of Desbrosses. I have very little info, other than a tip from T., who happened by the scene, and this from the NYPD:

On Tuesday, March 3, 2020, at approximately 1345 hours police responded to a 911 call of a person needing assistance in front of 440 Washington Street within the confines of the 1st Precinct. Preliminary investigation reveals a 54-year-old male appears to fallen from an elevated surface. EMS responded and pronounced the male deceased on scene. The investigation remains ongoing. The identification is pending proper family notification.



  1. I’ve been wondering whether more information about this man has emerged. I live across the street and saw him fall. I am thinking of his family, if he had one, and wishing them peace and healing. I am so sorry for the loss of his life.
