The woman was a home health aide as­sist­ing a bedrid­den woman on the third floor, cops said. The dead man was her boyfriend and worked as a liv­ery cab driver.

Neigh­bors said the woman worked three 24-hour days and would swap with an­other aide, who dis­cov­ered the bod­ies.

Ju­nior Valentin, who lives across the street, said he met the vic­tim’s son and her grand­chil­dren. “Nice lady. Nice per­son. When I heard this I went down, my sis­ter calls me, I was shocked,” he said. “I thought it was the other home at­ten­dant. But no, it was (the vic­tim).”

Cops towed away the man’s liv­ery car as part of the probe.

The pair’s names were not im­me­di­ately re­leased.
