Male discovered deceased in bathhouse toilet at 2:35 AM on Sunday morning (January 26) at the East Side Club. Sources told the New York Daily News the cause of death appeared to be drug related, as narcotics were found.
The East Side club disputes that assumption. Front desk worker Dexter Edwards told the New York Daily News the customer had died of a heart attack. Whichever way it happened, the facts are still the same. Dead man was discovered dead at the baths. That is sad.
New York Daily News writes
Julius Weil, 57, an ad executive who lives around the corner from the club, pointed out that the club is next door to public elementary school Beekman Hill International School, and is a few doors down from the High School of Art and Design.
“It’s on the same block as a public school,” he said. “They should move away from the school.”
Weil is president of the co-op board for his 57th St. building and a local community activist.
“I am shocked there is a bath house around the corner from me,” he said. “It’s a strange block.”
