YORKTOWN, N.Y. - Entrance signs to Donald J. Trump State Park in Yorktown have been removed following acts of vandalism.
The two vandalized signs are scheduled to be replaced in the next few days, said Dan Keefe, deputy public information officer for New York State Office of Parks and Historic Preservation.
The 436 acres of undeveloped land was donated by Trump to New York State in 2006. The park is divided into two sites: a 282-acre Indian Hill site in Yorktown and Putnam Valley, and a 154-acre French Hill site in Yorktown. Trump's name must be “prominently displayed” at both the Indian Hill and French Hill entrances, according to the 2006 agreement.
Earlier this week, Yorktown News reported that the entrance sign to Trump Park was also vandalized multiple times before being removed entirely.
Yorktown News readers have been outspoken on Facebook about the vandalism. Many criticized the vandalism as “immature” and “unacceptable;” others said they oppose Trump but do not condone vandalism; while some supported the property damage as a form of protest.
