A trio of buildings in Manhattan called Trump Place are dropping the president-elect's name from their building facades after hundreds of people signed an online petition.

According to NBC New York, the buildings will simply be known as their addresses, 140, 160, and 180 Riverside Boulevard. They are located near Lincoln Square in New York City. Riverside Boulevard overlooks the Hudson River and New Jersey.

A change.org petition to drop Trump's name from the buildings garnered 600 signatures. Trump's company does not actually own the buildings, however.

"We are assuming a more neutral building identity that will appeal to all current and future residents," Marty McKenna, a spokesman for manager and owner Equity Residential, told NBC.

One of the petition's authors told Bloomberg she is satisfied with the result of her efforts.

"We're very pleased, people felt really good that they could do something," Linda Gottlieb said. "It was an empowering way to protest. It wasn't a random protest, it was a very specific protest."

The three buildings in question are among several that bear the Trump name in Manhattan. There's no word whether others will follow suit and change their names.
