The swap is a violation of a special permit Trump’s business received months ago, the city’s Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings said Wednesday.
Donald Trump was given special permission to expand his Fifth Avenue tower in exchange for opening his lobby to the public daily. But buildings officials have said for months the Republican presidential nominee removed a 22-foot marble bench and put kiosks of Trump merchandise in its place.
The act was ruled a violation of the permit and Trump’s business was fined $10,000 and ordered to return the atrium to its previous condition.
City officials said the kiosks have been removed and the bench put back.
The Trump campaign has not commented on the incident.
