President Obama’s College Crib Available for Rent


If your heart’s desire is to sleep in the same space that President Barack Obama once did before he upgraded to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, then here is your golden opportunity. However, it’ll cost you a pretty penny.

According to CitiHabitats, the President’s former Upper West Side apartment, in which he stayed when he was a junior at Columbia University, is up for grabs for eager New York residents.

The two-bedroom spot, found at 142 West 109th Street, is currently available for rent at $2400 a month. Two years ago, the going rate for the spot was only $1900 a month. The website describes his once humble abode as “fully renovated with lots of charm,” and that it has “generous closet space.” We all know what that means (small, but you’ll be able to get by). Nonetheless, the boasting rights would be limitless.

Not sure how long this offer will stand, so if you’re interested (and it’s payday at work), you can check it out here.
