Secret Service Protection Touted as Newest Apartment Amenity in New York: Figure 1
Flier sent out touting new amenity at Trump Tower.

One week after the presidential election, residents of three New York apartment buildings that bear Donald Trump’s name petitioned for the name to be taken off the front of the buildings. Real estate brokers with units for sale in Trump’s buildings are now touting unique amenities to help combat the backlash associated with the buildings that still bear the president-elect’s name.

A few weeks ago, agents for New York real estate brokerage Douglas Ellimann sent out an email blast for their one-bedroom listing at Trump Tower that highlighted Secret Service protection as the building’s latest amenity (or aminity as the flyer reads). The $2.1 million listing was touted as the “best value in the most secure building in Manhattan.”

While Donald Trump will be moving into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW in January, his wife Melania and son Barron will remain in New York City. The cost of protecting the new first family is running New York City about $1 million a day.
