President Barack Obama’s New York College Apartment Is For Rent
If you have ever wanted to live like a President of the United States, here is your chance. The New York apartment that President Barack Obama lived in while studying at Columbia University. The space is at 142 West 109th Street in Morningside Heights, New York and can be yours for the list price of $2400 a month.
Two years ago the same two bedroom, 1 bathroom apartment rented for $500 less, but Zak Kneider - the sales associate representing the property - says it's still fairly priced.
“$1,900 was a little underpriced, and that was two years ago and market was a different place at that point in time. We’re dealing with a completely different rental market. Two years ago, owners would pay [renter] fees, and there were incentives of 1 to 2 months free. That’s nowhere near the case now. The inventory is not there.”
If you're still not sold, other than the presidential connection, this apartment comes with built-in bookshelves, exposed brick walls, high ceilings, large windows, hardwood floors, a marble bath, and updated appliances.
You'll just have to get past all of the nosy people who just wanna see the POTUS' old swagger-pad.
