Kutsher's is getting the wrecking ball this week. This is officially the end of an era.

^ Great story radio segment about the Borscht Belt history and the ruins, what to do with it now, build or leave alone, etc. And Marisa Scheinfeld's ruin pics accompany the story. You gals caught the same bug! Ruin porn hooks the special few. Good on ya.

Btw Googling BBelt pics brought me here, so I mentioned your blog on the WNYC site.

Love your pics and esp the comments. Wonderful history and stories, thanks!!

Love your story. Brings back many happy memories. My dad, Gordon Heiderich, played drums at Grossingers for a few years, as well as other resorts up there. I remember the Tutor Style buildings. I was probably about 10 years old. I would love to connect with someone that knew my dad. It's hard to believe that so many years have passed, and that all of this is actual "history" now.

My Grandmother was a Kutsher. Her brothers started the hotel in the early 1900's I spent many happy and memorable times there. My cousin Milton and Helen were great people
