New York City news, New York news.

An 18-year-old woman died late Saturday shortly after leaping from the 5th-floor window of an NYU building.

The teen was found unresponsive outside the NYU’s Barney Building on Stuyvesant Street with severe trauma at around 7:30 p.m.

She was declared dead at Bellevue Hospital, police said.

It was later determined that she had jumped from a 5th-floor window of the six-story building though it remains unclear whether she was an NYU student.

“I just heard a thump and girl scream,” a resident of a nearby apartment recalled.

“My roommate asked someone and someone said [they] jumped off and landed in that triangle area.”
