On Thursday, a New York City judge ruled that residents of Trump Place can remove the President’s name from the building.
According to Judge Eileen Bransten, the condo, located at 200 Riverside Boulevard in Manhattan, is not legally bound to display Trump’s name on the building.

During the fight to keep the name, Eric Trump defended the name and argued that it preserves his father’s legacy.
The ruling on Thursday could impact other Trump-branded buildings whose owners or tenants want Trump’s name removed from the building.
This is not the first building to remove Trump’s name from its building. There were three other New York buildings that removed Trump’s name from its building.
