Lawmakers call for removal of Trump park signs

Lawmakers are calling for signs about Trump State Park to be removed from the Taconic Parkway in Yorktown.



Assemblywoman Sandy Galef says the size of the signs not only annoy her, but so does the fact that the park doesn't exist.



"I really think we are doing a disservice to the public to tell them there's a park when there's not a park," says Galef.



Trump State Park was established a decade ago after Trump donated 438 acres of land in Yorktown and Putnam Valley to the state. In return, he got a tax write off. However, budget cuts shut the park down in 2010.



A senator from Brooklyn plans to introduce legislation in Albany to get the sign removed. In addition, Galef says she will be asking the Department of Transportation to do the same.
