Trump Park Avenue is a residential building on the southern border of Lenox Hill at 502 Park Avenue in Manhattan, New York City. The 32-story building, designed by Goldner and Goldner, contains 120 luxury condominium apartments and 8 penthouses converted by real estate developer Donald Trump.

Trump Park Avenue was built in 1929 as a skyscraper hotel. The building was originally the Viceroy Hotel but was renamed as the Cromwell Arms and as the Hotel Delmonico. In 1929, it was purchased by New York investor Benjamin Winter, Sr.[1]

The building was converted into apartments in 1974.[2] In 1990, real estate investor Sarah Korein converted it back to a hotel.[2] Trump purchased the hotel from Korein's estate in 2002 for $115 million.[2][3]
