A pair of “person vs. car” traffic accidents on the UWS over the weekend left a pizza delivery man seriously injured and a 75-year-old pedestrian dead. The fatality is being treated as a hit-and-run and police are searching for a suspect.
Posted yesterday that a man was found stabbed to death inside a hotel near Broadway & West 93rd on Friday afternoon. That news reminded me that DNAinfo recently ran a brief profile on Bernardo Paulino, the man accused of second-degree murder at the Camden Resident Hotel (205 W. 95th) on 7/20.

More sad neighborhood news on the heels of this morning’s post. A construction worker at The Church Of St. Paul The Apostle (Columbus & 60th) fell to his death on Thursday. He had been working in an “attic-like space” 125 feet above the cathedral floor.
Sad and scary way to start off the week, but frequent MUW contributor Noah snapped a shot of this macabre scene at West End and 71st earlier this morning. UPDATE 11:33 am: Bystander reports “he was on his way to work then dropped dead of a heart attack.”
