Photographer Unknown, (Thirteen Televisions: The Abandoned Adler Hotel, Silver Springs, Florida)

The Hotel Adler, was a 150-room, five-story hotel that operated from 1929 until 2004. Known for its therapeutic sulfur spa, it catered primarily to a Jewish clientele who travelled to Sharon Springs in the summers. It was kosher, with two kitchens. It was built in the Spanish Colonial Style and was adjacent to the Pavilion Hotel (demolished in 1941), which had been a summer destination for guests such as the Vanderbilts, Rensselaers, and Oscar Wilde. Former New York City Mayor Ed Koch worked as a busboy at the Adler Hotel in 1946. As of 2017, the hotel was still vacant.
