Trump Park Avenue is a former skyscraper hotel converted to a residential condominium by Donald Trump. It is located on the southern border of Lenox Hill at 502 Park Avenue Manhattan, New York City. It contains 120 luxury condominium apartments and 8 penthouses. The building is 32 stories high. It was built in 1929 and it was designed by Goldner and Goldner. The building has had many uses over the years. It 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]
