Police discovered a dead 48-year-old man in a Stuyvesant Town apartment at 446 East 20th Street on Saturday, April 9. Another resident of the building alerted T&V to the incident, noting that as far as other tenants on the floor were aware, the apartment where the man was found was unoccupied.

However, police said that the man’s home address was listed as the apartment where he was found. Blackstone representative Paula Chirhart confirmed that the person found in the apartment was in fact a legal tenant in the building.

According to the NYPD, the man was found unresponsive in the apartment, lying face down on the couch. Police said that the death did not appear suspicious. A spokesperson for the Medical Examiner’s office confirmed that the resident died of natural causes due to complications from diabetes mellitus. The man’s identity is being withheld by police pending family notification.

“We are pleased with the success of the dog days event, which provided an opportunity for neighbors to meet and enabled management to register over 50 dogs,” Hayduk said this week.
