A man was stabbed to death during a wild broad-daylight brawl in the middle of a Chelsea crosswalk — where they fought it out as grizzled New Yorkers strolled casually by the mayhem, according to video of the incident.

The fight broke out just before 8:15 a.m. in the busy crossing at West 30th Street and Seventh Avenue, where the two men squared up to each other and started throwing massive haymakers, according to cops and video of the incident.

While one woman can be seen in the clip walking by in the crossing and barely giving the fisticuffs a glance, another woman who appeared to be a nurse walks right between the men as the larger combatant holds a knife.

Minutes later, the shirtless victim, who is reportedly 36 years old, is seen bleeding on the sidewalk, as police frantically tried to save his life.  He was rushed to the hospital, but succumbed to his wounds.

The victim has not yet been identified, pending notification to his family.

Twitter user “Luke2Freedom,” an independent journalist, tweeted that the victim was just out for a jog.  However, that detail has not yet been confirmed.

The attacker, identified as Nisean Graves, 34, is reportedly a homeless man with a criminal record.  According to the New York Post, Graves was sentenced to a year in jail in June 2021 for stabbing another victim in both arms in Lower Manhattan in May 2021.

Prior to that, he had served nine years in prison for attempted rape, was just released in January 2019, and is a registered sex offender.
