Thanks Robert, but it's likely that MyHeritage's information comes from the same NY State database as Ancestry's, and that database includes only "residence code," not place of death.
Morris's residence code was 7096 -- the state's code for Queens and for 100+ neighborhoods within Queens -- including Far Rockaway, where Morris actually lived. (See the NY State Gazetteer at
https://www.health.data.ny.gov/api/assets/991FD0D8-73AF-4573-96F1-437E33D24BCA -- page 138.) As one very knowledgeable colleague pointed out to me, Ancestry lists everyone with a 7096 residence code as a resident of Aqueduct -- perhaps the area near Aqueduct Racetrack, in southern Queens. This explains Sherri Bobish's find:
<<The All New York State, U.S., Death Index, 1957-1969 on Ancestry lists 14,444 persons with residence place as Aqueduct, Queens.>>

According to MyHeritage, Morris died in Queens, NY. 1968 death records for Queens, NY would be held at the NYC Department of Health.
