The 136 Madison center occupies the 5th and 6th floors of a 17-story early-20th century building off East 31st Street in the luxury shopping corridor of New York City's Murray Hill. It's close to the green space of Madison Square Park and a short walk from the famous Flatiron skyscraper. Entry to the elegant building is through a beautiful wrought-iron arched door. Once famous for its advertising agencies, today the midtown section of Madison Avenue is home to marketing firms, premier retail outlets and the corporate headquarters of many different businesses, including communications, energy, investment funds, investment banking, hedge funds, real estate and fashion. For public transportation, the district is well served with the 6 train at 33 St, and with Grand Central and Penn Station close by for commuting to the suburbs. LaGuardia Airport is about 16 minutes away by car.
