At its peak, the Borscht Belt was comprised of over 500 hotels and 50,000 bungalows. Photographer Marissa Scheinfeld's images document the dramatic degradation of some of the most famous Borscht Belt hotels and colonies; they reveal ghostly remnants of the era's glory years, the powerful evidence of nature's claim on the resorts and their landscapes and new uses to which the spaces have been put.
