Summer respites in the Catskills were a way of life for Jewish
New Yorkers during the first six or seven decades of the
Twentieth Century. Presenting films such as Billy Crystal’s
Mr. Saturday Night, Dirty Dancing and Having Wonderful
Time with Ginger Rogers, Kupferberg and Edelman discuss
issues relating to the type of entertainment presented at
Catskill hotels, the importance of time away from New York
City, dating, parent-child conflicts—and of course, the food!
