970 Park Avenue is a luxury residential housing cooperative in Manhattan, New York City.

970 was designed by the New York Architectural firm of Schwartz & Gross and built by the developers Bing & Bing.[1] It is located on Park Avenue at 83rd Street.

The 12-story building was erected in 1912. In 1940 the bank that owned the building reconfigured the building, altering the original spacious apartments into smaller units.[2] In 1987 it was converted to a cooperative in 1987 by Martin J. Raynes; Raynes added two triplex penthouses with "greenhouse" studies, circular staircases and large terraces.[3]
