WGN:

There’s a petition going around to give Trump Tower a new address — on President Barack H. Obama Avenue.

The appeal, created by Elizabeth Rowin on the progressive advocacy site MoveOn.org, requests that New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and the New York City Council rename the block of Fifth Avenue between E 56th and 57th Streets in Manhattan after President Donald Trump’s predecessor. It also states that any address on that block “should be changed accordingly.”

Rowin, a Los Angeles resident, wants New York to follow the example of her city, which renamed a nearly four-mile stretch of road from “Rodeo Road” to “Obama Boulevard” earlier this year.

“The City of Los Angeles recently honored former President Barack Obama by renaming a stretch of the 134 Freeway near Downtown L.A. in his honor,” the petition states.

“We request the New York City Mayor and City Council do the same by renaming a block of Fifth Avenue after the former president whose many accomplishments include: saving our nation from the Great Recession; serving two completely scandal-free terms in office; and taking out Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind September 11th, which killed over 3,000 New Yorkers.”

As of Thursday morning, the petition has more than 280,000 signatures.
