Our Building’s History

244 Madison Ave was designed in 1916 by Arthur Loomis Harmon, who was born in Chicago and was the architect for the Empire State Building.

In the mid-1920’s, the Norcross Greeting Card Company, formed by Arthur Norcross, was located at 244 Madison Ave. The company name on its letterhead was simply Norcross, and its areas of business listed as Publishing and Advertising. Mr. Norcross, his wife June, and apparently at least one child, a daughter, were active not only in the management of the company, but also in the design and selection of its cards. Among its many other distinctions, Norcross is noted as the first commercial card company to produce Valentine’s Day cards.

Also, the poet Ogden Nash had an office here and even penned Spring Comes to Murray Hill, a poem mentioning our building.

Our 180 unit building stands 17 stories tall and 244 Madison Ave converted to a co-operative in 1984.
