This signature book captures the flavor of the "Borscht Belt," that fabled vacation area just "ninety minutes from Broadway." Summer romances, mambo time, menus with seven kinds of herring, musical and comedic greats getting their start, bungalows, and big hotels like Grossinger's - all come back in a rush. Through the power of oral history, more than a hundred voices share stories that span nearly a century - recalling an experience that exists now only in memory.
