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.”
