Borscht Belt Artifacts: Relics of the Catskills Resort Age

February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free

Did you ever visit one of the famous Catskill Resort Hotels of Sullivan or Ulster Counties? Do you remember the golf courses and swimming pools, well-manicured lawns, ballrooms, and theaters? Of course, we cannot also forget the famous or someday-to-be famous comedians and other performers who entertained the guests and the delicious food that has traveled around the world.

Come remember these memories with Alex Prizgintas. A historian, musician, and lecturer who focuses on neglected history of the Catskills and Hudson Valley region, Alex serves as president of the Woodbury Historical Society in Orange County, New York, and has been published in the Hudson River Valley Review and the New York Archives Magazine. A preservationist, Alex stewards the Richard L. Benjamin Collection of Borscht Belt Tourism History, which contains hundreds of documents, postcards, and ephemera from the Borscht Belt era. Many of these items will be brought to the lecture for attendees to view live.
