The one place we visited for several summers when the kids were young was a bungalow colony in the Catskills, one of the many Jewish resort communities that flourished in the region.
The colony we returned to regularly was run by the Kasimoff family. Just like at home, our bungalow unit was on the second floor and Florence negotiated for a discounted rate for it.
Florence went with the kids “to the mountains” for a month each summer, while I worked in Brooklyn and drove up to be with them on weekends. I didn’t have a lot of choice. Summer was the season for making money in the roofing business.
