NYC: Woman on First Date Falls to Death From Balcony

I have a severe fear of heights. I actually wish i was an inch shorter. I have never lived in and refuse to live in any apartment or house above the second floor. I will avoid escalators if they are “free floating” . So this story creeps the hell out of me.

Early Thursday morning, a 35-year-old woman on a first date fell to her death from the 17th floor of her Manhattan apartment building. The woman, an ad executive, was on her balcony having a cigarette when the railing apparently gave way.

Jennifer Rosoff, walked out to her balcony with her date around 12:50 am. Rosoff reportedly either leaned against or sat on her railing, despite a warning from her date. Her date says he then heard two loud pops before the railing partially collapsed, causing Rosoff to fall 17 floors, before landing on scaffolding below.

    I used to work on the 105th floor of the World Trade Center —
    I used to go out on the roof top of 14 Wall Street – -40 floors above — to have lunch …
    i once refused a job because it was below the 50th Floor, and thus had no view …
    I love glass walled elevators – -

    i don’t like when railings give way, though …
