Hundreds of tenants signed a petition saying they were embarrassed to live in a place named after the president-elect, The Hollywood Reporter.
Donald Trump's name is being stripped off three luxury apartment buildings Trump Place after hundreds of tenants signed a petition saying they were embarrassed to live in a place associated with the Republican president-elect.
In total, about 600 residents of the three rental towers in Trump Place signed the online petition.
Tenants learned on Tuesday from the company that owns and manages the New York skyscrapers, which hold 1,325 rental apartments, that the huge gold letters spelling out "Trump Place" would be removed from the sides of the buildings within days.
"We're all very excited and thrilled, and it's about time," said Marjorie Jacobs, who has lived in one of the buildings for five years. "We're disgusted with the results of the presidency."
