The man was in cardiac arrest when he was rushed to Weill Cornell Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to cops and the FDNY.

The building houses the JJ Brown Cup coffee shop and the UES ice cream shop on the ground floor, with apartments above.

The incident comes a day after a man plunged to his death from a high-end Manhattan building overlooking Central Park early Tuesday, cops said.
