‘Stars of the Borscht Belt: Entertainment Legacy of the Catskills’
Hosted By: New York Adventure Club
The Catskill Mountains, and the dozens of resorts therein, were the summer destination of millions of mostly Jewish families from the New York area for many decades — and particularly in the 1950s and early ’60s, became an ineffable part of American culture. What are the stories behind some of the most legendary resorts, and who were the major entertainers who graced their stages? It’s time to explore the entertainment legacy of the Catskill Mountain resorts and uncover what made them so special.
Led by award-winning author Will Friedwald, who is widely considered one of the nation’s most prolific music writers.
