President Donald Trump now calls the White House home, but his former residence remains a source of anxiety for New York City officials. The cost of providing increased security at Trump Tower, the Fifth Avenue skyscraper that remains the primary residence of Trump’s wife, Melania, and 10-year-old son, Barron, came into clearer focus last week with the release of new analysis from the New York City Police Department. NYPD Commissioner James P. O’Neill provided the most detailed expense projections to date in a letter to New York City’s federal representatives. The NYPD’s latest figures fall well short of initial estimates, but the city still plans to seek federal reimbursement for the costs associated with protecting Trump and his family.
