Greg.... wow ! 55 yrs ago ,,, you were there hahahaa...I was replying to Susan's Az. post saying , she thought Bushwick hospital closed in 1949...saying i was born there in 1950... I still have the birth certificate printed inside of the book they gave all moms when their child was born and I also have 3 beads from the 5 letters of my last name that they put on the childs wrist.. not like the plastic ones they use now... white beads with black letters... my mother lived to be 95 and found it in her belonging when she passed away... even drawing from my kindergarden class... I believe the hospital became a Nursing Home . i have no idea if the building still stands...a tuff neighborhood now .

I was born there in 1951. My mom was a labor and delivery nurse there in the 1950's We lived across the street at 1005 Putnam Avenue. I remember there was a candy store on the corner. I went to PS 56 on Bushwick Avenue in the late 1950's. We moved away in 1959.

I was born there in 1951 and I have a Pink beaded braclet with my name on it!!. My mom was a nurse there in the 1950's and we lived across the street at 1005 Putnam Avenue. Theere was a candy store on the corner and the hosptial was turned into a nursing home before it finally closed. I was in the neigborhood in 2011 and the building is still standing but boarded up. The area looked clean but smaller than I rmember. My apt building is still standing. I would be interested on anything you have on this area. We moved away in 1959.

I'm reading your other posts..I went to PS 56 on Bushwick and Madison and my brother went to Frankin K. Lane (he was 10 years older than me. What a joy to find someone who also has these memories.

My mother's birth certificate, from 1926, says she was born at 75 Bushwick Ave but does not name the hospital. Was that the location of Bushwick Hospital?
