Secret Service Billed As 'New Amenity' At Trump Tower In NYC

KCBS_740NEW YORK (KCBS) -- The Secret Service is being billed as a new amenity at Trump Tower by real estate brokers trying to lure new business to Fifth Avenue Building in Manhattan.

Politico reports that a prominent real estate agency sent out an email with the subject "Fifth Avenue Buyers Interested in Secret Service Protection?" The email was to advertise a $2.1 million, 1,052-square-foot condo in the tower on 721 Fifth Avenue.

The email went on to mention "The New Amenity – The United States Secret Service," along with "The Best Value in the Most Secure Building in Manhattan."

The email highlights is thorny issues surrounding President Elect Trump and his multiple business dealings, and while Trump has announced he will step away from his business interests, there may be no way of getting around other business associates using his brand for their own opportunity.
