The Nevele Grand Hotel was established in 1901 near Ellenville, N.Y., and was one of the famous Borscht Belt resorts located in the Catskills.The campus included an 18-hole golf course, a 9-hole golf course and a ski slope which have since fallen into disrepair. The hotel buildings remain, falling apart and with no future of reuse. The resort closed officially in 2009 due to financial troubles. Today, there are plans to tear down the remaining structures on the property and turn it into a sports complex. View images of the abandoned Nevele Grand Hotel above.
