A worker died Friday after he fell from scaffolding at an NYU facility in Greenwich Village, authorities said.
The victim, whose name was not immediately released, was working outside the sixth floor of New York University’s Languages and Literature Building on the corner of University Place and W. 8th St. when he plunged about 11:20 a.m., police said.
Coworkers said the victim lived in New Jersey, had a daughter in college and was hired here less than three weeks ago. His job was to mix cement and lay bricks.
Workers were making facade repairs to the east side of the building, which is covered in scaffolding, according to posted work permits.
Earlier this month, three people were hurt after a plywood wall collapsed near Times Square.
