Trump Organization Has More Than $ 17 Million In Contracts With New York City. Many of them are for iconic tourist attractions, such as a golf course, a carousel, and two ice rinks. One of them, the Wollman skating rink in Central Park, generated $ 9.4 million in revenue for the Trump Organization, according to its most recent financial reports.
The Administration will notify the Trump Organization that the city will cancel its agreements to operate the Central Park carousel, the Wollman and Lasker skating rinks, and the Ferry Point golf course for the reasons mentioned.
