Trump May Reopen Tavern on the Green

By on Thursday, January 27th, 2011

Already owning and operating at least a dozen properties in NYC including Wollman Rink in Central Park, Donald Trump may add yet another jewel to his crown: the venerable Tavern on the Green. Trump has been negotiating with the union for some months now and appears to be close to a deal. According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump plans to spend at least $20 million on renovations and will re-hire employees who were out of a job when the restaurant closed over a year ago.

    If he names it Trump’s Tavern on the Green, or Trumpers on the Green, or Trump’s Got All the Green, I may well spit. (P.S. I used to write for his magazine, and they stiffed me on the last story — a millionaire! Stiffed a freelance writer! Only in NY.)

    I’ll bet a dinner there that it WILL be “Trump Tavern on the Green”

    And as for stiffing us free-lance writers, you know that old bromide: “The rich get richer…” for a reason….

    Even so, I hope someone puts the Tavern back in business…had many a lovely evening there when I lived in New York City “back in the day….”
