Kutsher's Country Club was once one of the premier destination resorts in the Catskills, catering to Jewish travelers seeking a kosher getaway.  Entertainment greats such as Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Jerry Seinfeld and others were regular performers in its heyday, here is the final performance to take place in the Deep End Lounge.  

Kutsher's had been in operation since 1907 but much like every one of its Borscht Belt counterparts, had dwindling attendance and ultimately closed in 2013.  Demolition is currently underway for a health and wellness resort to take its place.  It was the last resort. Prints available here.
