Trump’s Name Finally To Be Stripped From NY State Park


The New York State Senate Approved a Bill, Thursday, that could trigger the Renaming of a Hudson Valley State Park, which for years has carried the name of Trump.

State Sen. Brad Hoylman (D-27th District), a Sponsor of the Bill said. “Trump has dishonored the state and should not be honored with a state park named for him.”

The Measure directs the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, to launch a Legal Review into Renaming the Largely unused “Donald J. Trump State Park,” which Straddles the Border of Westchester and Putnam Counties along a State Parkway.

The Review could pave the way for a Name Change for the Park and the Installation of New Signs.

Lawmakers have sought for years, to Rename the 436-acre Site, which Trump Donated to the State in 2006, after hitting Roadblocks in Plans to convert the Land into the 18-hole Championship Golf Course and Country Club, he envisioned after Purchasing it for $2 Million in the early 1990s. He then claimed the Parcel was worth $100 Million used the Donation as a Tax Write-off.

New York State announced the Park's Closure due to Budget Cuts in February 2010.

If Trump’s Name is eventually Removed from the Park, it would appear to be an Answer to numerous Longstanding Public Calls for its Renaming, including, a Petition in 2015, that gathered 2,800 Signatures on change.org called “Rename Donald J. Trump State Park to… anything else.”
