Rothenberg's Tamarack Hotel, Greenfield Park, NY
I am writting a paper on the History on the Tamarack Lodge & need information on the history & happenings at this grand old place. Marriages, deaths, murders, famous people who stayed & played there. When was it built? How many owners, etc. Thank you so much, you can e-mail me at; firstname.lastname@example.org barb
I stayed at the Tamarack from 1969 - 1975 during the summers. There is a group on Facebook dedicated to this hotel and those days.
I basically grew up at the Tamarack and still have a house 3 miles west of the location. My family and I were good friends with the owner Mr. Dave Levinson. He would turn in his grave if he can see the way it is now!. There are lots of great memories about the hotel from the staff to the guests. Let's hope and pray that the tribe that bought it can do something great with it like how it used to be. I saddens me everytime I drive by the hotel when I retreat back home. My mother used to work there and my brother, sister and I all went to came there and eventually worked there as well. It was the best childhood and I would love to have my future kids experience what I had back then. The Tamarack was one of the first hotels in the Catskill to lead the domino effect on all of the other hotels to collapsing; including the once exclusive Concorde Hotel. Let's wait, see and pray that the hotel industry can make a come back and bring the Catskills to where it once was!!

I grew up going to The Tamarack every summer from 1952 to 1968 when I got drafted. Dave Levinson was my cousin, his mother and my grandmother were sisters and starting in 1963 I started working in the coffee shop with my Aunt Helen and Dave's sister Henrietta. I was a bus boy, waiter and occassional tummler. I can probably answer any questions about it so if I can be of help feel free to ask. Mikeyk2248@aol.com
