Who could have seen that coming?

First suicide. Family mystified; no note.
I bet the DL has some theories.

The jersey alone is a dead giveaway it was CTE.

Three suicides in a year, especially in a year like 2020, makes it a "suicide magnet"?

Well, they have closed it indefinitely.
What do you think a jury would say?

Well, if the jury were composed of Guardian journalists they'd say the building is guilty of murder because all cities are sexist because skyscrapers look like penises

It's so fucking ugly. The first time I saw it I wanted to kill myself, too.

Is the spiral staircase inside or outside of the building?

I would always try to find ways to kill myself, but then I realized to commit suicide in NYC is redundant.

I find this odd, because it has been known that this kind or architecture attracts suicides. In certain states is actually illegal for hotel atria, unless suicide proof. It only drives home just how isolated architects are from the human behavior.

This sucks--suiciders ruin everything.
The structure is gorgeous, with the stunning inside staircases based upon some ancient Indian temples.
Now they will have to put plexiglass barriers to prevent people from jumping off. It'll look ugly.

Is it just a stairway? To where? Hell?

They’ll have to dismantle, raise and redesign the railings twice as high to the tune of $100 million or so. They didn’t see this coming and I’m guessing it’s not getting the crowds they expected because the mall is a flop.

Conveniently located in Midtown. Jumpers don't have to walk halfway across the Brooklyn or George Washington Bridges.

R9, if ONLY there was a way to see that the structure is a staircase with no inside or outside. If ONLY we could see pictures somewhere of this obscure, unknown structure.

Then they are idiots. The architects should be charged with criminal negligence. It was foreseeable and it was preventable. Can you imagine if someone designed a car with such negligence?

Maybe they ran into the fabulous Elizabeth Chambers and were so humiliated by their ordinariness, they went over.

iPod song - "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly
It's a shame because it really is a beautiful structure. My sister and I went there a year ago last November. We got about halfway up and had to turnaround. It was scary. I can see, though, why someone may want to jump. There's something about the feeling of unrestricted access to air, if you will.

R4 What is CTE?

R4 Oh I see, never mind, it's the effects of multiple traumatic brain injuries. Yeah, that's a good theory.

I can understand why. I work there and the mall is a dud. It was built for rich people, not regular folks.

Totally agree about the mall, R27. I'm not a jet-setting fashionista nor do I read Vogue. I didn't recognize many of the stores in that mall.
