"Bedpan Alley"

Manhattan's Upper Eastside has many hospitals including the New York Presbyterian-Cornell Medical Center, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center,  Lenox Hill Hospital, Manhattan Eyer, Ear and Throat Hospital, Rockefeller University Hospital, Lauder Breast Center, Rogosin Institute, and Gracie Square Hospital. The section of First Avenue north of the  Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge is also sometimes referred to as "Bedpan Alley" (a play on "Tin Pan Alley") because of the large number of hospitals in the area. The photos above show aerial views of First and York Avenues, and signage at the 68th Street subway station.
