New York - nother building is stripping Trump off its entrance.

The New York Times reported Wednesday that residents of Trump Place on the Upper West Side of Manhattan have joined three other buildings in the neighborhood in stripping the president’s brassy five-letter name from their 46-story building in another sign that the brand is losing some of its appeal.

The move follows reports of losses at some of President Donald Trump’s golf courses, and decisions by several hotels that had licensed the president’s name to drop it.

After more than a quarter century, Trump Plaza will now be known only by its address, 200 Riverside Boulevard.

The name had become controversial among the building’s residents during Trump’s campaign and presidency. Owners in the 377-unit tower were worried about the resale value of their condos and also raised concerns about security in condo meetings. But potential legal and other costs of removing Trump’s name kept some from pushing harder for a change.

Then in May, a judge ruled that the Trump Organization was wrong in asserting a contract that obligated residents to keep the name. That freed the way for a formal vote and, in a poll that ended Oct. 10, nearly 70 percent of owners who voted said they wanted to change the name, according to the The New York Times .

The board estimated it would cost about $23,000 to remove the 20 letters from the building and wash the facade.

In addition to three other New York condos, Trump’s name has also been removed from hotels in Toronto, Manhattan’s Soho neighborhood and Panama City since he became president.

I would also want it removed .

1) it's irrelevant who is president . If it were Obama towers it would need tighter security and would be a pain in the neck too
2) yes trump is controversial. Doesn't make it bad

Not at all surprising that they voted to remove the Trump name since it has negative connotations. Who would want to see that name every day. The name Trump gets as much respect as the names Benedict Arnold, Charles Manson, David Duke.

Narrishkiten. The name Trump has plenty of respect. It simply creates lots of noise and not something you want your building to be subject too.

And I'd say both you and the guys screaming snowflakes are crazy. Its simple practicality. Who wants to have to go thru so much security and protests outside your residence daily. Its very possible that Trump is respected. Although I'll concede in NYC....

America is Great. Trump is under investigations. All of this before the Dems have any power at all. Democracy is at his best. The whichhunt will start after Nov election when the Dems take over, just like the whichhunt of Hillary/Benghazi was under Republicans. Real Which hunts (Not like Mueller,Rosenstein,Banon and other Republicans investigating for a show the POTUS) will produce REAL results like Tax Returns etc. Don't forget the H Emails was discovered under the Republican Benghazi Which hunt,
