Some of the residents at a Central Park West co-op are using their windows to protest President Trump, but the building management is not impressed.

The residents at 415 Central Park West are using large block letters to spell out the word “RESIST” in the windows, the New York Post reported. The building management is unhappy with the protest, according to the paper, which has been strategically timed for Presidents’ Day weekend.

Management tried to stop the signs going up, saying it was against the rules. The signs were put up on Friday night and will come down on Monday evening.

“They put notices under the doors, saying it was against house rules and there was an open house sometime over the weekend,” one couple, who wanted to remain anonymous, told the newspaper. “Against house rules — no idea what their explanation was.”

The building is managed by Matthew Adam Properties. A representative was not immediately available to comment to the Post.

In October, residents at 160 Riverside Boulevard launched a petition to “dump the Trump name.”  The following month, Equity Residential TRData LogoTINY removed the Trump signage at three of its Upper West Side buildings. [NYP]Miriam Hall
