Obama’s College Apartment For Rent

Every property has a past. Sometimes, it’s the site of gruesome murder, other times, it’s the place seven strangers were picked to live and have their lives taped.

Now, (just in time for election season) we’re talking about a rental with a political past.

President Obama’s former 2-bedroom college apartment on the Upper West Side in Manhattan is now for rent. The price has been reduced to $2,300 (down $200 from a previous listing), which is still far higher than the $180 Barrack and a roommate each divvied up for the pad in the early 1980s.

But as the listing proudly proclaims you too can,

“LIVE WHERE PRESIDENT OBAMA LIVED ! Yes president OBAMA lived in this unit while he attended Columbia university so be part of history. This unit features two bedrooms, marble bath, hardwood floors, exposed brick, high ceilings, great closets space. Please call to see this great deal and who knows you might end up at the WHITE HOUSE one day!”

Located at 142 W 109th Street #3E, it also comes complete with a framed picture of Obama standing in the very same apartment.

Would this rental get your vote?
