He took customer service to new heights.
A dapper daredevil seen jumping between the rooftop awnings of a Manhattan high-rise is a contractor for the building — who was checking on a leaky skylight when he took the pulse-pounding leaps, The Post has learned.
The well-dressed worker was caught in a viral video mysteriously hopping from awning to awning hundreds of feet above the street on the roof of 90 West St. Tuesday.
A resident of the 115-year-old building, who identified herself as Andrea, said the light-footed construction worker climbed through the window of an apartment on the 23rd floor after snapping photos of the leak in her home.
“My skylight leaks — it’s been raining for five days. Andrew, the super in the building, got the construction guy to come up and look at it,” said Andrea, who lives on the 22nd floor.
“Next thing I know, I’m in the kitchen looking up at him and he’s up there on the skylight taking pictures,” she told The Post Wednesday.
She said the contractor — who wore a suit and dress shoes while making the daring jumps— climbed onto the roof with no apparent protective line or equipment.
“He was really on top of those roofs with nothing. I mean, I just thought it was a little crazy. That’s all there was to it,” she said. “He got out through a window on the 23rd floor and that’s all there is to it.”
Stunning video posted on Instagram shows the daredevil making a phone call on the roof before leaping across at least five awnings, each designed with dramatic slopes and no protective barrier.
Erik Ljung, an Emmy Award-winning film director who shot the now-viral footage, said he was in a meeting with fellow filmmakers Tuesday morning when he spotted the daredevil.
“He looked oddly comfortable doing this,” Ljung, of Chicago, told The Post Wednesday. “I’m from out of town, so I figured it was just another weird New York moment.”
Ljung said his team of 10 people were discussing if they should shoot outside, when he checked the weather to gauge the light at around 9:50 a.m.
“I looked outside to see if the clouds were going to break. And I saw this guy jumping from awning to awning,” he said. “I was like, ‘Yo — you guys have to check this out…Everyone came over to the window to look,” he said.
“At first, we thought he was a parkour guy — but he wasn’t young and didn’t seem in shape, and he wasn’t taking selfies,” Ljung said. “He was in a suit and dress shoes and it had been raining, so it seemed unnecessarily risky.”
When Ljung learned from The Post that the mystery man was a building contractor, he said, “That’s hilarious.”
“He went up there, did his job, jumped back across — and he was wearing dress shoes,” he said.
