The first time I met Emily H. Fisher, the primary investor of the Emerson hotel and spa complex in Mt. Tremper, New York — who recently purchased local developer Dean Gitter’s shares to become sole owner of the sprawling complex along the Esopus Creek between Phoenicia and Boiceville — the place was still called Catskill Corners and its main claim to fame was the giant kaleidoscope just opened there. Gitter was flashily opening up a second kaleidoscope attraction…and hadn’t yet started talking about his plans for a Belleayre Resort in nearby Highmount, for which Fisher would also provide financial backing.
