President Obama’s old New York apartment is on the Market. According to Newsday, “The Upper West Side third-floor walk-up where Obama lived while attending Columbia University in the 1980s hit the market this week. The two-bedroom prewar apartment will run you $2,400 a month, quite a jump from the $360 Obama and a roommate paid in 1981. Zak Kneeder, the Citi Habitats broker listing the apartment said, "The apartment has a little charm, but other than that, it is a typical apartment." "Nothing is out of the ordinary except for that Obama lived here." More from Politico’s 44.
