Kutsher’s, the fabled Catskills resort hotel, is set to be demolished later this month.
The 1,300-acre property near Monticello, N.Y., was sold last year for $8.18 million to Veria Lifestyle Inc., which plans to turn it into a health and wellness resort. Pre-demolition work already has begun with the clearing of trees and brush, and the buildings will be demolished in the next week or two, according to the Times Herald-Record.
Abramson, the first woman but hardly the first Jew to hold the top editorial position at the paper, lasted less than three years. The Times did not explain the reason for her departure. She will be replaced by Dean Baquet, the managing editor.
