Young hopeful takes own life at 26

A 26-year-old fashion photographer ended her life on Sunday, leaving her friends and family bewildered and stunned.

Greenpoint resident Veronica Boehm threw herself in front of a northbound C train at 5:40 pm in Manhattan’s 96th Street Station.

Police sources said she died instantly from multiple blunt traumas and a medical examiner ruled her death a suicide.

Boehm grew up in Maryland, but moved to New York about eight years ago with dreams of becoming an artist and shutterbug.

She studied photography at the School of Visual Arts under the tutelage of acclaimed photographers, including Charlotte Cotton and Seth Greenwald, and her work appeared in the school’s visual arts gallery in 2007.

She pursued a career in fashion, serving as a photo editor at City Magazine and working at Williamsburg’s perennially hip Beacon’s Closet vintage and consignment store for several years.

The store closed on Monday in the wake of her death as her co-workers mourned their beloved friend’s passing.

Others posted reflections on her Facebook page.

“You were really amazing and impossibly warm and always down for a lark,” wrote one friend. “I’ll miss you very very much. Dance partners forever.”
