Poker Chips & Cards Print by Marisa Scheinfeld
Today the Borscht Belt is recalled through the nostalgic lens of summer swims, Saturday night dances and comedy performances. But its current state, like that of many other formerly glorious regions, is nothing like its earlier status. Forgotten about and exhausted, much of its structural environment has been left to decay.
"Poker Chips & Cards" captures a moment in time at Grossinger's Catskill resort and Hotel in Liberty, NY that no longer stands.
