Man Leaps From 23rd Street Ledge

Someone emailed me a couple weeks back that there was a man jumping off a ledge on West 23rd btw. 8th & 9th. It took me a while to finally get around to checking it out, but luckily, the man is still in the process of jumping:

I believe this is some sort of art installation. It’s sort of weird, because he’s inverted in a way that plays tricks with your eyes…I wonder if the effect makes his jump look a bit more realistic…
