Did you know there is a connection between the NYC marathon and 41 Madison? 41 Madison, home of the New York Tabletop Show, is owned by the Rudin family, and the family helped start the NYC Marathon. The Times shared this history in an article recently. Excerpt:
"...In 1976 when George Spitz, a civil servant and runner, proposed a marathon through all five boroughs, the time seemed almost right — if daunting. “A race like that could cost $15,000,” Mr. Lebow pointed out. “Where are we going to get that kind of money?” But Mr. Spitz won over Manhattan’s borough president, Percy Sutton, who persuaded Lewis and Jack Rudin, brothers from a prominent real estate family, to put up $25,000. That was the turning point."
Thank you, Rudin family, for helping start a New York tradition.
