The Poconos Complaint


LTV Press is proud to announce our 4th and perhaps most hilarious publication: The Poconos Complaint

Deep in the woods of the Poconos lays an abandoned resort where no one can hear you scream. Or break windows, or throw what’s left of the furniture off the balconies or all those other awesome fun things one can do in a completely trashed, absolutely worthless abandoned set of buildings.

This location-specific book takes a long hard look through the eyes of pissed off guests at the slow, painful decline of The Poconos Garden Lodge – a resort once owned by the much more infamous ‘Mt Airy Lodge’ (which itself was bankrupted, abandoned and completely bulldozed and replaced by a casino of the same name). The book is comprised entirely of darkly humorous complaint letters from actual guests and the responses sent back to them by inept hotel management who seemed to be in absolute denial of the decay setting in around them. These letters are illustrated by more recent photos showing the post apocalyptic state of the grounds today.
