Trump's name to be removed from building on another New York skyscraper
Donald Trump, the man who knows how to make deals and build better than anyone, is having his name removed from another building of his for the second time in only four months.
Residents at the "Trump Place" New York City condominium building voted to remove Trump's name entirely from the front of the building, which apparently happened because people were embarrassed to live there.
The building's board announced the decision on Thursday, according to an email that The Washington Post obtained.
Here's a view of the tower, taken from Google Maps:
As of right now, it's uncertain what the new building will be called, but it's assumed that the name will just be taken down without a replacement at this time.
Since Trump was elected, five buildings bearing his name have decided to remove it, this is just the latest one.
This has to be a slap in the face to Trump, who still calls New York City his home. His name was put on the building in his honor after he helped develop the area that it sits on in the 1990's.
One of the reasons the name change took place, too, was the fact that the buildings haven't been earning enough money or doing a good enough job drawing in residents.
“Trump buildings have not performed as well as the rest of the market over the past 18 months,” said Daniel Levy, CityRealty president. Levy said that it’s difficult to determine the exact cause of the price depreciation but that “the data certainly suggests kind of a negative correlation between [the prices] and the presidency since he took office.”
The Trump Organization isn't immediately responding to requests for comment at this point.
