    From left: Donald Trump, Mitt Romney and the Trump Tower at Columbus Circle

    Donald Trump has apparently become a mandatory pit stop on Republican presidential candidates’ long drives to replace President Barack Obama in the Oval Office. And usually it makes for a great photo opportunity.

    But MediaBistro reported that when Mitt Romney “went off to kiss the ring” of the Donald, he did so privately inside the Trump Tower, evading, and ultimately disappointing, a legion of press stationed outside the building.

    “Well, pictures were snapped,” Trump later said to Fox News. “But they were snapped privately.” … [more]

    Developer Donald Trump has caught the television bug and is creating a drama based on a group of New Yorkers who live in his prized property Trump Tower at 721 Fifth Avenue, the New York Post reported.

    Although the show will be fictional, the writers will be able to draw inspiration from the celebrities and well-known characters that have taken up residence at the tower at one time or another. Steven Spielberg, Sophia Loren, Johnny Carson and Michael Jackson have all lived in the building.

    “Several major network and cable channel executives have already called, and a battle has begun to see where it will air,” said Michael Cohen, Trump’s special counsel. [Post][more]

  • Chodorow selling Trump Tower triplets

    Restaurateur Jeffrey Chodorow has put his 3,700-square-foot pad at Fifth Avenue’s Trump Tower on the market for $16.4 million — more than triple what he paid for the three-apartment combo in 2004. According to Curbed, the new listing, by Trump Sales and Leasing, is currently the priciest in the building. Per the listing description, the seven-room spread Chodorow created contains a chef’s kitchen (naturally), a “dramatic living an entertainment area,” and views of Central Park and the Empire State Building. No word on the next move for Chodorow, though his newest eatery, Bar Basque, is located at the Beatrice luxury rental tower in Chelsea. [Curbed]
