AT A CATSKILLS REUNION, A BUNGALOW COLONY’S PAST AND PRESENT COME TOGETHER

Thirty-three years ago, my family was on our way upstate to look at a bungalow for sale in a co-op near White Lake, New York. Many of the “borscht belt” hotels had closed, but the Catskill Mountains still had natural beauty and there was still life in the nearby towns. Our kids were restless: What’s a bungalow, our 10-year-old daughter asked? Ever the academic, I tried to place bungalows in context. They were, I said, little cottages where city folk used to spend their summers before air flights became popular and vacations became global. They were, I continued, sort of extinctnow. Without missing a beat, our daughter said, “Like the buffalo?”
