From now on, an Upper West Side condo building will no longer be called 'Trump Place.'
The New York Times reported last week that the name was removed from the facade of 200 Riverside Boulevard following a battle involving the condo owners and the Trump Organization.
The letters spelling out T-R-U-M-P P-L-A-C-E were recently taken down, and the building will now be referred to simply as 200 Riverside Boulevard.
In a recent formal poll conducted by the board, 70 percent of the owners expressed their desire to remove the sign. The name change will cost about $23,000, according to the board's estimate.
In 2000, the building entered into a licensing agreement in which it would pay $1 in perpetuity for the privilege of carrying the Trump name. But after the election of Donald Trump to the presidency, about 63 percent of the residents expressed a preference to have the name removed last year. Meanwhile, an attorney for the Trump Organization, Alan Garten, sent a letter to the condo board, stating that the company would initiate a lawsuit if such a move happened.
