The French Hospital
I was born in The French Hospital 12/25/1948. I can corroborate some information stated by others. Babe Ruth was hospitalized in The French Hospital (you can see the entrance and name in the movie The Babe Ruth Story with William Bendix). My birth certificate does have the hospital's picture on it with the address. I will get it from the safe deposit box and verify what the address was in 1948. Although, I'm not Catholic, I know it was a Catholic-affiliated hospital run by a French order of nuns. I know the hospital was converted to an apartment house because I drove by it in the 1990's. I don't know if you still can get a copy of the hospital's birth certificate with the hospital's photo, but you can definitely get a certified photo copy of a birth certificate registered with the City of New YOrk. Although this is the City version, not a copy of the one provided by the hospital. I have both versions. The hospital's birth certificate has the baby's name, attending doctor's signature, Mother's thumb print and baby's foot print.
