In its heyday the White Pines resort in Poconos was a haven for garment workers who could relax with their families, enjoy sports and shows.
Today, all that is left is a series of crumbing buildings, damaged by the severe Pennsylvania winters that have hit since it was forced to close in 1990.
Philadelphia photographer Matt Hurst has documented the dated decor of the forest resort, where members of the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union would come to relax.

A heart-shaped hot tub on a platform is still at a now deserted honeymoon resort nearby
Abandoned for more than 20 years, the Pennsylvania resort stands as a reminder of mid-century style, according to the Huffington Post.
Block concrete buildings give way to dark wood interiors and bright orange soft furnishings. At a nearby honeymoon retreat, fake foliage still hangs around a plastic heart-shaped hot tub, raised on a green-carpeted platform.
'I was immediately attracted to and intrigued by the Brutalist architecture of the main building,' Hurst said.
'While the facilities here are not scheduled for any demolition that I am aware of, the elements are doing their part to hasten its demise.'
At its height, the garment union had 451,000 members, who were able to use the forest resort at subsidized cost.
Summer sports, theater shows and concerts were put on for the workers and their families, as well as enriching lectures.

It even earned the praise of Eleanor Roosevelt, who wrote after visiting it in 1945: 'You could not put children in a more favorable environment.'
After being inspired by the derelict 'worker's paradise', which he noted was free from the usual graffiti and vandalism, Hurst also photographed a nearby resort for honeymooners, which included heart-shape hot tubs and red bedroom walls.
However, White Pines reflected a transition in history that appealed to the photographer.
'The transition of White Pines from a thriving, modern "worker's paradise" to crumbling ruins depicts both the difficulties the region has faced in attracting clientele as well as the struggle of the organized labor movement in the United States,' he said.
