Hospital spokeswoman Eileen Tynion says that veteran staff often swap stories about spikes in baby births, but couldn't recall such a tyke-storm as the one that began on Tuesday. She says once or twice a year about 65 babies are born over 48 hours.
The usual tempo for the hospital is about 20 bundles of joy a day.
Tynion says the closures of two Brooklyn hospitals might have helped stoke the surge.
She says there were no complaints from moms.
