24-year-old man leaps to his death from top of NYC’s 2 Penn Plaza

A 24-year-old man leaped to his death from the top of a Midtown office tower on Tuesday, landing at a construction site near Penn Station, police said.

The man, who has not been publicly identified, plummeted from the 32nd floor of 2 Penn Plaza, on Seventh Avenue, between 31st and 33rd Streets, around 1 p.m., the NYPD said.

Police sources said he randomly walked into the building wearing earbuds — with cops later finding his wallet on the top floor of the 32-story building.

No other details were immediately released.

Landlord Vornado Realty Trust is currently redeveloping the building, which is adjacent to Penn Station and Madison Square Garden.

The tragic incident comes just weeks after Connecticut financier Dale Cheney jumped to his death from a Times Square rooftop bar.
