Are you familiar with the Borscht Belt? That is the name applied to the resorts that were tucked away in the Catskill Mountains. Many of these vacation destinations offered everything in one place! Swimming, golf, entertainment and luxury accommodations for the whole family.

The once grand resorts such as the Nevele, Grossinger's and the Pines Resort in Fallsburg are only a shell of what they once were. Today many of these properties sit abandoned and decaying. Scroll through the pictures below to see what the Pines Resort looked like then and now.

According to Abandoned, the Pines Resort was built in 1931 and, at the time boasted "cold and hot water in every room"! Over the decades the Pines grew and evolved into a place where families would go for indoor and outdoor swimming. The outdoor pool featured an iconic rainbow bridge.

It is said that the Pines Resort closed it's doors in 1998 due to financial struggles. Since that time, the buildings that once offered nightclubs, massive kitchen to serve hundreds of people and 400 guest rooms have been rotting. What is left is a sad look at a once jewel of the Borscht Belt.
