Residents voted to remove “Trump” signage from Manhattan condo, court papers show

Tenants at 200 Riverside Boulevard voted 158-59 to remove it last February.

Residents at a condominium on the Upper West Side want President Trump’s name off of their building, according to a lawsuit.
The tenants of 200 Riverside Boulevard voted 158 to 59 in February 2017 to remove the “TRUMP” sign from their building, according to the Daily News. The board initially decided not to take the letters down after the Trump Organization sent them a letter threatening a lawsuit, but members then filed their own lawsuit in January asking a judge to let them take the sign down.
Tenants did not vote to take the sign down lightly and received a briefing from the NYPD’s counter-terrorism unit last year, where they were told police did not view the building as a likely target for terrorists, legal papers show.

And not everyone in the building agreed on taking down the sign, with one resident writing, “People should get out of their liberal bubble. I don’t want a handful of vocal people who don’t share my values and views deciding what happens. Even if it costs a dollar I won’t support it.”
The Trump name has also come down at the former Trump Soho, which owner CIM Group renamed the “Dominick Hotel.” The Trump name has also been stripped at real estate projects in Toronto and Panama. [NYDN] – Eddie Small

The messed up thing is that they prolly hurt the building's value by doing that.

In America, bad publicity make good publicity

They aren’t the only ones rushing to disassociate themselves with this monster.

Edit: you actually already mentioned the former trump Soho.

I don't blame them. Too many crazy white fake progressives over there.

How does that hurt the value if most of the people who would live there don't want the name there?

Is it mainly because the economy is doing so well or because the administration has significantly increased funding to historically black universities? I can’t keep up with what to be outraged about...

The prices of the condos in the building suffered after Trump was elected. Brokers told them it was because a large segment of buyers didn't want to buy in a building with the Trump name on it. That's how this started over a year ago. So, in their minds at least, they are better off financially without the Trump name. It's not much different than what has happened with all Trump named hotels all around the world. Business is off by about 20 to 30 percent at most Trump properties. Because of business declines associated with the Trump name his personal fortune took a 600 million dollar whack in 2017 according to the Forbes list.

So, in this case, bad publicity(Trump name) is not good publicity.

That's the value of them right now, after the man leaves office for good they'll prolly be clamoring to change it back

Ppl get funny like that

They didn't change the name of Trump Village in Coney Island yet (even though technically that's named after his father). When the people who live there want to change the name then you'll know the consensus is real.
