The NYPD Harbor Unit discovered a corpse floating in upper New York Bay yesterday, not far from the spot where a man had jumped from the Verrazano Bridge the week before, writes the New York Post police blotter.
The body, which appears to be that of a 46-year-old man, was found floating off Shore Road near Bay Ridge Avenue, just before 2 p.m.
Authorities are seeking to determine if the corpse’s identity is that of a man who jumped off the Verrazano Bridge last Friday.
The jumper had been tentatively identified as 46-year-old Brooklyn resident Benny Guzman. Friday’s incident was the latest in a series of suicides and attempted suicides on or near the span.
