970 Park Avenue Overview

This apartment building at 970 Park Avenue on the southwest corner at 83rd Street overlooks the Roman Catholic Church of St. Ignatius Loyola and its school and related facilities on the avenue block just to the north.

The red-brick building was erected in 1912 as a 12-story building and was converted to a cooperative in 1987 by Martin J. Raynes who added two triplex penthouses with circular staircases, "greenhouse" studies and large terraces. The expansion employed unused air rights from the building and from the adjoining building at 66 East 83rd Street.  (Raynes made a similar addition of penthouses to 525 Park Avenue and while both resulted in impressive new apartments, they did not, unfortunately, relate contextually to their buildings even if they are setback on the roofs.)

The 15-story building has 40 apartments.

It was designed for Bing & Bing by Schwartz & Gross, whose other buildings on the avenue include 470, 525, 885, 888, 911, 930, 941, 983, 1045, 1070, 1125 and 1165.
