The hospital Sandy Dennis escapes from is on Welfare Island, today called Roosevelt Island. Early in the episode Lt. Parker drives his car on the lower level of the 59th St. bridge from Manhattan towards Queens responding to the scene. You see him turn off mid-span onto a terminal on the north side of the bridge. He drives onto a vehicle elevator which lowers him onto the island. That no longer exists. Today you cannot drive over the bridge from Manhattan directly onto Roosevelt Island. You have to drive to Queens and take a smaller bridge at 36th Ave and Vernon Blvd. in LIC. See more
