Police said Ms Perrelli had likely been trying to cross to the roof of an adjacent building when she fell.

No criminal investigation has been launched.

Ms Perrelli's family has been left searching for answers.

Her father Louis Perrelli told the New York Daily News she was an "angel".

"She's very mature, quiet, lovely," he said.

"She was always the designated driver, the good person, the peacemaker."

Her uncle Michael Perrelli said the family had been told conflicting stories of how she died.

He wondered how she was able to fall at all.

"Don't they have a fence on top of the building? They allow parties?" he told the Daily News.

Another uncle, Steve Perrelli, posted on Facebook that the family had lost "a true angel".

"I will miss you more than you know," he said.

Local politicians also responded to the death, calling it a reminder that landlords needed to better manage rooftop access.
