The plaza which was opened in 1984 used to be the spot where countless parties were hosted for Hollywood stars and sportspeople before it finally closed its doors in 2014.

Even though the property is still called by Trump's name, the immediate past US president was said to have cut ties with the property since 2009.

According to city officials, the building had to be demolished after it fell into disrepair following its closure.

Another report by New York Times noted that not less than 3,000 pieces of dynamite were used to implode the 34-story building which only took a few seconds. Onlookers gathered around the shore to watch the implosion.

This development comes a few days after the United States (US) legislature on Saturday, February 13, acquitted Trump of the numerous charges related to the Capitol Hill invasion.

The votes which ended up as 57-43 were cast by both Republicans and Democrats at the House.

Although at least seven Republican lawmakers joined 50 of their Democrat rivals to vote against Trump, the support fell short of the 67 votes required to convict him.
