February 7, 2014 | Aymann Ismail

As you may have heard, actor Philip Seymour Hoffman is dead. Although the autopsy results are still inconclusive, it’s very likely that he died of a drug overdose. Since the first day that news broke of his untimely demise, fans have been flocking to his West Village apartment complex. I stopped by there this afternoon to document what people have been leaving behind. Check back every Friday for a new photo essay! (Photos: Aymann Ismail/ANIMALNewYork)
