NEW YORK — The New York City apartment where Barack Obama lived in the 1980s is available for rent. But there's no guarantee it'll inspire presidential aspirations in the next occupant.
The two-bedroom railroad apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side is listed for $2,400 a month.
When Obama shared the 109th Street apartment with a roommate while attending Columbia University, the monthly rent was $360.
Broker Zak Kneider says he had received nine emails inquiring about the apartment by Wednesday evening.
The listing reads:
