Borscht Belt Virtual Talk

The program is a memoir of Bart Charlow’s early years growing up in the Irvington Hotel in South Fallsburg, Sullivan County, coming to terms with it and cherishing its life lessons. Bart describes memories of his youth, the hotel scene and more. It takes you behind the scenes where life was tough, turbulent, and alternately warm and hard. This is the real Borscht Belt, told by a 3rd generation insider with no illusions. Set during the Golden Era of the Borscht Belt, learn how it flourished and faltered, how it felt to watch the life you knew and your livelihood fall apart, and how to pick it all up again in new ways. The dying embers of a life that was never before and will never be again.
