Description

A copy of this engraving, created as the frontispiece to An Acccount of the New York Hospital, 2nd ed. (New York: Collins & Co., 1811), was in the collection of I. N. Phelps Stokes, from which it was reproduced in his Iconography of Manhattan Island.  The Lunatic Asylum, forerunner of the Bloomingdale, which was built at this location on the New York Hospital grounds on Church Street between Duane and Worth in 1808, is the building at the left hand side of the picture.  Prior to its construction, patients had been housed in the cellar of the wing on the right-hand side of the main building in the picture and then on the top floor of that wing.
