I lived across the street on Cauldwell and we called it "the rocks". I only learned about Carr Hill from the book "History in Asphalt". They say it went from 149th Street to 156th Street (with Westchester Ave. and the elevated subway tracks splitting it), but see Marty's post about that (156th Street). Based on some old photos, Lebanon hospital was on the northeast side. Is that right? According to History in Asphalt, after 1943, when the hospital closed, the building became the Bronx Garment Center, a huge factory. That was demolished in 1956 along with Carr hill so the St. Mary's Park housing projects could be built.
