SHRUB OAK, N.Y. - The entrance sign to a Yorktown residential development bearing the name of President Donald J. Trump has been vandalized multiple times and now his last name has been removed entirely.

Lt. Thomas Gentner of the Yorktown Police Department said there have been two reports in the last few months of just the “T” being stolen from the sign; he could not speak to the other missing letters. In both instances, Gentner said the “T” was not returned nor recovered, and nobody was arrested.

Trump Park Residences, a 141-unit complex, opened in 2007 in Shrub Oak. It is owned by Yorktown Realty Associates LLC, a subsidiary of Cappelli Enterprises.

It is not clear whether the remainder of the sign was removed by vandals or by Yorktown Realty. Messages left for Cappelli Enterprises were not immediately returned.

Beyond the use of his name, Trump Park Residences is not affiliated with the president. Yorktown Realty has a license agreement to use his name.

I Do Not Make Stuff Up!

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote in my column, “Watergate analogies apply to Obama, not Trump,” that President Obama’s Justice Department planted a spy in the Trump campaign.

That statement has been brought ...

Packing Heat

“Are you leaving me?” asked my husband one night as he surveyed the contents of my closet on our bed.

“What? No!” I said. “Why would you think that?”

“Every single article of clothing you own is laid out on our bed,” he replied. “So I have to assume you are either leaving me or you have joined the armed services and if that’s the ...

What More Can Murphy Do?

June 21, 2018

In his letter “Murphy should address gun laws” (June 14), Bernard Lipsy praises Sen. Terrence Murphy and then condemns him for not keeping guns away from people that shouldn’t have them. I was wondering just what new laws he would propose? How many more laws are needed? How about enforcing the numerous laws already on the books, which, by the way, isn’t being done?
