Trump Tower drawing job seekers
The replica louis vuitton bags president elect lives in a penthouse crowning his eponymous building, all shiny black reflective glass with a zigzagging faade.

Adjacent to the entrance to the Trump Tower, Tiffany Co., which was festooned with Christmas lights was almost entirely empty.
Not that Trump isn’t a big draw. In just a few days it has become one of New York’s top tourist attractions, the place to see and be seen and to take a selfie.
Before the streets were barricaded Saturday, one of the luminaries who showed up was filmmaker Michael Moore.
“I just thought I’d see if I could get into Trump Tower and ride the famous escalator,” said Moore who was wearing a red 49er hat.
Holding a smartphone away from himself, apparently taking a Facebook Live video of his visit, he walked across the shiny marble floor of the replica louis vuitton atrium with reporters and photographers trailing.

“He is not our president,” said Sarah Ivey Long, 25, a carpenter and actress from Brooklyn. “I don’t think the people will stop protesting.”
Under normal circumstances, Trump would be expected to move into the White House at inauguration on Jan. 20, relieving New York at least of the security and traffic burden.
But there are fears that he might decide to fly home on weekends, not least of the reasons being that his youngest son, Baron, is a 10 year old who might choose to finish the school year in New York. During the campaign, reporters covering Trump were surprised that the candidate flew back from across the country almost every night to sleep at his own home.

Even before Trump became a presidential candidate, the tower was somewhat controversial because its construction required the demolition of the beloved art deco building that had housed the Bonwit Teller department store. The real estate site Curbed listed it as one of the 15 ugliest buildings in New York and quoted a commentator saying it “screams ’80s capitalism and Designer Louis Vuitton Replica Handbags excess.” The late architecture critic Ada Louise Huxtable scorned its lobby as a “pink marble maelstrom.”
