Built in 1912, the nine-story, 34-unit building was converted into a cooperative back in 1983. 

The building has a full-time doorman, live-in superintendent and a central laundry room. 

The alleged suicide comes as a string of people have plunged to their deaths in New York City.

In late October, a man jumped to his death from the 12th floor of a luxury New York City building near Central Park. 

The Bed Bath & Beyond CFO Gustavo Arnal, 52, also jumped to his own death in Tribeca in early September.

His death came as the company announced plans to close 150 stores, of its roughly 900, and lay off 20 percent of staff just two days before Arnal’s death.

A 40-year-old woman also jumped in late September from 157 East 57th Street in the Sutton Place neighborhood.

A woman was found with injuries that were consistent with a fall, she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The source did not identify the woman. A salesperson at Bassano Jewelry, just down the block from where the tragedy unfolded, told DailyMail.com that the building at 157, 57th Street, is known as ‘the suicide building.’
