Grossingers family who moved from New York City to Ferndale in Sullivan county in Catskills around 1900s , used to rent rooms to visitors from New York City; Which they called Longbrook House. Around 1919 they sold their place and bought a bigger house on 100 acres, named Grossinger’s Terrace Hills House. Which once served 150,000 guests per year. And also was known for the first time using artificial snow; that made the Resort earn high reputation in worldwide for skiing. Between 1970-80s, the Resort failed to attract younger guests. Then in 1984 it held the “Woodstock” weekend to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the festival; famous singers, bands and politicians were invited to promote Grossinger; But the Resort couldn’t see the lights of hope.
In 1986 Grosingers sold the place to Servico, who failed to revive the place due to financial hardship. Since then main hotel and main resort are closed.
Here are some photos from abandoned Grossinger, once stood high and welcomed thousands of guests and was proud for its artificial snow.
Several other companies failed to revive the old glory of Grossinger’s Resorts, yet drastically failed. As of September 2013, it is owned by Louis Cappelli, who is hoping for casinos to come to the area.
