There may be thousands of New York City Jews upstate in Catskills camps and rentals for the summer, but the area seems to have lost its cachet as a political hotspot. So far, despite new life being breathed into the area by non-Orthodox city dwellers, only longshot candidates for mayor have traveled up Route 17 to press the flesh (among males) at bungalow colonies and pizza joints in such hamlets as Monticello, Woodburne and Swan Lake.

When the dust settles, one of these candidates will run City Hall next year.
