Watch Donald Trump’s Name Get Removed From a New York City Apartment Building

The gold letters are gone

Letters spelling Donald Trump’s name have been removed from three New York City apartment buildings, following Trump’s election win.

Crews removed gold letters spelling “Trump Place” from a residential building in Manhattan on Wednesday after hundreds signed a petition demanding the building drop the president-elect’s last name.

“It will be like a breath of fresh air, walking down Riverside Boulevard not being embarrassed by the ‘Trump Dump’ name,” Marjorie Jacobs, a resident of one of the buildings said. “We knew that we did not feel safe with his name on the building.”
