House Tour: A Look Inside President Obama's Old NYC Apartment (VIDEO)

At first glance, this apartment seems to be just like any other two-bedroom unit on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. But about 30 years ago, this was where the 44th president of the United States lived. So in honor of Barack Obama's re-election for a second term, we bring you this mini tour of his old NYC abode. Obama's roommate from the time even offers some insight into what it was like living with the president while he was a student at Columbia (hint: yes, he washed his own dishes). Watch the video above to check out the space and hear what type of roommate the president was back in his college years.
