St Joseph's Hospital, Mott Haven
See page 382 for a photo of St Joseph's Hospital for Tuberculosis Patients (or Consumptives) founded by the Sisters of the Poor of St. Francis in 1882. The location seems to have been on Brook Avenue between East 143 St and East 144 St. In the 1960's, my grandmother was a patient at St. Francis Hospital, perhaps on Brook Avenue between East 142 St and 143 St.
