Misterl...I greatly appreciate your response. Thank you! Like you, I also have "History In Asphalt" with all its information regarding both Carr Hill and Lebanon Hospital`s history going back to around 1850 when it was first built as Ursuline Convent. I cannot remember with accuracy if it was located on the northeast side of that rocky bluff, as more than 70 years have passed since I last saw that hospital, looking west from the elevated subway over Westchester Avenue. I can vividly visualize it as stretching south to north from Cauldwell Avenue to Trinity Avenue, but can`t remember if it also turned a litte toward the east. That hospital was SUCH an old landmark, that one of the nurses who worked there could have been Florence Nightingale!
