The Secret Service is being touted as a new “amenity” for Trump Tower residents, according to Politico.


Real estate agency Douglas Elliman sent out an email flier advertising a condo for sale in the building with a subject line that reads “Fifth Avenue Buyers Interested in Secret Service Protection?”

“The Best Value in the Most Secure Building in Manhattan,” the email reads. "The New Aminity [sic] – The United States Secret Service.”

According to Politico, the one-bedroom condo up for grabs is going for $2.1 million and spans 1,052 square feet.

While Elliman's email touts Secret Service protection as a reason to buy in Trump Tower, realtor Debra Stotts tells Politico that Trump's election win could inspire other residents to leave the building. 

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said this week that the city is spending $500,000 a day on the Trump Tower security detail. While Trump will be moving out after inauguration, his wife, Melania, and youngest son Barron are planning to stay in the penthouse suite, where they will continue to be protected by Secret Service agents.
