• Trump Tower could end up on Obama Ave, if petition succeeds

    Updated:

    NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. - There's a push to honor former President Barack Obama in New York City.

    A petition to name part of Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th Street "President Barack H. Obama Avenue" is gathering momentum on the website MoveOn.org.


    TRENDING NOW:


    As of early Wednesday morning, more than 87,000 signatures had been collected.

    The petition was started by Elizabeth Rowin. She told Newsweek that the whole thing started as a joke.

    If New York authorities honor the petition and change the name of the street, it would mean Trump Tower in Manhattan would be located on President Barack H. Obama Avenue.
