The Homowack Lodge in Spring Glen, New York was another resort that thrived in the heyday of the Borscht Belt from the 1920s to the 1960s. The lodge boasted its own bowling alley and an indoor swimming pool. The Homowack Lodge tried to find another life after the decline of the Borscht Belt as a Jewish girls day camp, but it was closed in 2009.
