Man Jumps 7 Stories Off Balcony in Downtown New Rochelle

Written By: Robert Cox

NEW ROCHELLE, NY — A man jumped to his death Tuesday evening at about 10 p.m.

A resident of The Printhouse, located at 165 Huguenot Street in downtown New Rochelle, heard shouting coming from a 7th floor community balcony area — closed for months due to coronavirus — and as he looked out his window to see who was yelling he said he saw a man jump off the balcony.

The man landed in a parking lot on the property and was killed instantly, according to the resident.

A woman who lives in the building was with the man when he jumped. New Rochelle Police Department and New Rochelle Fire Department responded moments later. An area in the parking lot was sealed off as a crime scene.

The woman soon after attempted to leave the building. Sensing she was not in a coherent frame of mind another resident resident convinced the woman to remain. She was later taken away in an NRPD patrol car.

The man was pronounced DOA at Montefiore New Rochelle Hospital.

  1. So someone who jumps to their death is automatically a low life? You donโ€™t know the whole story to pass such judgements. There is such a thing as mental illness that happens to affluent people as well. Seems like your comment is based on other prejudices you may have. You must be the crowned prince of Echo Bay. ๐Ÿ™„

  2. Our city needs love people need help we are the people may he rest in peace now.mother nature. Is coming soon to help and ๐Ÿ’˜ us all heaven on ๐ŸŒŽ have faith believe dreams come true God bless the ๐ŸŒŽ

  3. You shouldn’t call anyone, especially someone who just committed suicide, a low life, you’re the real low life Robert, you need to get a life stupid!!!

  4. Keep building and letting low life people into NR.You can add thousands more into the city but if you have nothing for them to do as SHOPPING …..where is the shopping ? Taxing the infrastructure, schools, neighborhoods. I’m sorry I just don’t see this as a positive step forward.
