Former Brooklyn Jewish Hospital

Synagogue opposite.


"On Prospect Place just west of the Shuttle you will find the old Brooklyn Jewish Hospital, which incorporated in 1901 and opened this building in 1927. Albert Einstein had surgery performed here in the early 1950s. In 1979, Brooklyn Jewish filed for bankruptcy and merged with St. John's Episcopal Hospital in 1982 to form Interfaith Medical Center. In 2000 Interfaith relocated its entire facilty to the former St. John's facility across the street. The old building is now being renovated for other uses, possibly as a nursing home."
