Body found floating in East River by Williamsburg’s Giando on the Water

From Broooklyn Paper:

The East River view of a tony Williamsburg restaurant turned grisly all of a sudden on Thursday morning when a man’s body floated to the water’s surface, cops said.

A 911 caller reported the corpse bobbing along the rocks lining the shore in front of Giando on the Water’s wraparound windows at the end of Broadway at 8 am, officers stated.

Police are still trying to determine the identity of the dead man, how he died, and how he got into the water, according to the NYPD.

The restaurant does not serve breakfast, according to its online menu.

This is of course horrible news. Oh, and what’s up with that odd “does not serve breakfast” line?

The man, who was partially clothed and appeared to be in his 30s or 40s, was spotted against the rocks near the Williamsburg Bridge and behind Giando On The Water, a Kent Avenue waterfront restaurant, the official said. He was found at about 8 a.m., police said.

A delivery person spotted the body, said a man who worked at the restaurant and declined to give his full name.

    Coincidence ?
