Eastchester man who fell in NYC laid to rest

An Eastchester High School graduate who fell to his death in Manhattan was laid to rest today.

Family and friends of Nicholas DePippo, 23, held a funeral this morning at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Scarsdale.

Police say Nicholas DePippo was with friends in New York City early Sunday morning watching the sun rise, when he fell.

They believe the 23-year-old went up on a walkway railing near 71st Street and may have slipped and fell on the jogging path below to his death.

Authorities say he had previously been drinking.
