New Yorkers renting in the Trump Place buildings on the upper west side have forced the building's owner to take Trump's name off their homes.
More than 600 tenants signed a petition to change the three buildings' names. Equity Residential has affirmed that it no longer had any contractual obligation to call the buildings "Trump Place" and so it would comply with the residents' wishes.

“The building is beautiful, the service is impeccable,” Marjorie Jacobs, a resident in the buildings, told Bloomberg in October. “But the name is very embarrassing. I’m embarrassed to tell people where I live. I tell them 180 Riverside Blvd.”
Amanda Miller, a Trump Organization vice president, said in an e-mail that the name change was mutually agreed upon and “simply the enforcement of a pre-existing agreement which has been in place for years.”
