A man jumped to his death early Sunday off the roof of Trump International Hotel and Tower, just off Central Park, police said.
First responders removed the body of the unidentified man, who appeared to plunge 44 stories from the top of the building, just before 8 a.m. Sunday, according to witnesses.
The building, at 1 Central Park West, near 61st St., is home to a luxury hotel and apartments, about a mile from President Trump’s New York City offices and triplex apartment in Trump Tower on Fifth Ave.
The man landed just behind the hotel marquee in the front courtyard of the hotel property, not far from the sidewalk, at about 6:10 a.m. and was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities and witnesses said.

Police continue to investigate the death, but said there were no early signs of foul play.
New York City Marathon runners were expected to travel into Central Park near the hotel in the final stretch of Sunday’s 26.2-mile race.
