Trump Building Residents Petition To Get Name Changed
Apparently, the residents of Donald Trump’s “bigly successful properties” aren’t quite as proud of being associated with him as he seems to think.
Over 80 residents in one of his New York high rises have signed a formal petition to have the mogul candidate’s name stricken from the property and all signage bearing the Trump name removed. Residents claim that it’s “embarrassing” and gets awkward for them when they have company come visit them at their homes, having to enter a building bearing the Trump name.
At least 81 residents at 220 Riverside Boulevard near 72nd Street have signed a petition to rename the tower — and to tear down its “Trump Place” sign, according to the real estate website Brick Underground.
An online petition to “dump the Trump name” at 160 Riverside Boulevard had also raked in 277 signatures by Sunday.
If they’re able to swing it, it could cost between $200,000 and $1 million to get the building renamed and re-branded, which would definitely cut into the capital fund of the building.
Seems like residents feel that it’s worth it…
