The plot on Fifth Avenue between 56th and 57th streets in Manhattan, Thursday was blocked. The US President Donald trump called the inscription attempt to devalue urban area, known for its chic shops and expensive real estate. De Blasio described the criticism of the project by the head of state as a manifestation of racism.

“The population of our city is not just drawing letters on Fifth Avenue. We are committed to that message,” wrote de Blasio. He posted the photos which illustrate the work he, the preacher, al Sharpton, considered one of the most famous in the United States advocates for the rights of the black population, and several dozen volunteers with rollers on long handles. The inscription, made of bright yellow paint covers about a third of the roadway of the street and clearly visible from the Windows of the Trump Tower.
