Your best bet is to go to
And search the NYC Death Indexes.
Based on his age you can narrow down the
Possibilities.  Then register at and ancestry if you have a subscription and see if you can locate the death certificate.

If you can’t the next step is to order a death certificate from the NYC Municipal
Archives , 31 chambers Street in Manhattan.

Hope this helps.

An uncle named Gershon Lorek who became George Lawrence, is shown as an inmate in this mental facility in NYC in the 1930 Census but does not seem to appear anywhere in the 1940 Census. My assumption is he died there but I have tried without success to find records of the period from the New York from links sent to me by NYC records. I wonder if anyone has had any success finding any ?
