A defunct Queens hospital recently made an appearance an a popular TV show.
Parkway Hospital, the Forest Hills medical center that closed in 2008, was referenced in a recent episode of “Law and Order: SVU.”
As is typical in the nationally televised crime drama, SVU shows the location of where the detectives are headed in between scenes. In this particular episode, the crew headed to the abandoned building that used to be the hospital.
They described it as “Basement of Abandoned Hospital 70-33 113th Street in Forest Hills Sunday, February 1st”
The episode was about trying to find a girl a pimp kidnapped and was hiding in an unknown location.
We don’t know if this pimp chose Parkway Hospital for the hiding place, but we’re sure that the detectives eventually found the girl as that is the case for every SVU episode ever.
