Borscht Belt Bungalows: Memories of Catskill Summers

| |

Irwin Richman

Publisher: Temple University Press

Every year between 1920 and 1970, most of New York City’s middle class Jewish population summered in the Catskills, in modest rental bungalow communities. Many today remember the colonies with either aversion or fondness. In a poignant memoir and photo album, Irwin Richman recaptures it all-from the traffic jams leaving the city to misleading advertisements.
