I happen to have been born in Dr. Leff's Hospital in Manhattan. By coincidence
my middle name is LEFF, having been born to a daughter of Abraham LEFF/(erst)LEW from Lomza, Poland. Dr. M. Leff was subject of some investigation into his obstetric practice and lying-in hospital records keeping.

Hospital Owner Gets Two Years

Dr. Morris Leff, 58 year old Bronx physician and owner of a maternity hospital at 1831 Grand Concourse, was sentenced yesterday to two years in jail and a fine of $1000 following his conviction in December on two misdemeanor counts: keeping false hospital records and falsifying a birth certificate. Judge Samuel Joseph in the Bronx County Court suspended the jail sentence and postponed payment of the fine pending an appeal. He placed the physician on probation for two years.

There was no article about the outcome of the appeal. I would think that you would be able to find more about the court proceedings by talking to someone in the Bronx County Court records office. They are located at:

851 Grand Concourse, Room 118
Bronx, NY 10451-2937
Telephone: (718) 590-3644


I hope there is some active following on this thread; albeit It seems quite old.

Thank you.
