WASHINGTON HEIGHTS — The streets around New York Presbyterian Hospital are about to be shut down as crews prepare to install fuel oil tanks atop the hospital, officials said.

West 168th Street between Broadway and Fort Washington Avenue will be closed to traffic from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sept. 7 and 8, the hospital said in a notice to community groups.

Crews will use a crane to install four oil tanks with New York Presbyterian's standby fuel supply onto the roof of the hospital.

The hospital's ambulance bay will remain accessible from 168th and Broadway at all times during the street closure, the hospital said.
