National Democratic Club


233 Madison Ave, New York, NY 10016
The Joseph Raphael De Lamar House, home of the National Democratic Club in 1923, now the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland, at 233 Madison Avenue was designed by C.P.H. Hilbert from 1902-05. This Beaux-Arts mansion, the largest in Murray Hill and one of the grandest in all of New York, was designed as a private residence for Joseph Rafael De Lamar, a Dutch-born maritime Captain and copper mogul who made his fortune in the California Gold Rush.

The Joseph Raphael De Lamar House was designated a landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1975.
