Multiple protests that started around the city last night converged on Trump Tower as thousands spoke out the election of Donald J. Trump.
The NYPD had increased security at the real estate mogul’s glassy high-rise, with a ring of sand-filled garbage trucks lining the perimeter of the building. Sixty-five people were arrested at the peaceful protest with charges including disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
