[Updated] Subway shove victim worked in the East Village for 16 years

As you may have read, a woman shoved a man in front of an incoming 7 train at the 40th Street-Lowery Street station in Sunnyside last Thursday. Police identified the victim as Sunando Sen, a 46-year-old native of India who had lived in Queens for several decades.

Sen worked in the East Village for 16 years at NY Copy & Printing, 204 E. 11th Street, as EVG reader Tad pointed out in an email.

Per Newsday:

"People have been coming to remember him with us," said Bidyut Sarker, Sen's boss. "He was brilliant. He was kind. We all miss him."

Sen had recently opened his own copy shop on the Upper West Side. His funeral was Monday.

Police have arrested Erika Menendez, who was being held without bail on a murder charge. She reportedly told police she pushed Sen because she thought he was Muslim.

I recognize that face, probably from using the copy shop for various projects years ago. So sad. My heart goes out to his family and friends.
