In its glory days, Grossinger’s Catskill Resort Hotel outside Liberty, N.Y., was a
glamorous vacation scene frequented by celebrities. Eddie Fisher and Elizabeth
Taylor got married there, and it was the inspiration for the fictional resort in Dirty
Dancing
, the iconic 1987 movie starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.

Now the owner of the non-operational hotel has applied for state funds to clean
up the acres of contaminated ruins and recreate a grand resort on the grounds,
according to the New York Times.

For the new Grossinger’s, developer Louis Cappelli of Westchester, N.Y. told
the Times he imagines a golf course, yoga classes and chalets — not the
bungalows where Baby and Johnny danced in Dirty Dancing and had the
time of their lives.
