(Newser) – Barack Obama's old New York apartment needs new tenants. For $2,400 a month, you can live like—well, if not a king, then at least a future president. The two-bedroom Upper West Side abode was last available two years ago, Daily Intel notes, for just $1,900 a month. Obama lived there in 1981, as a junior at Columbia. Interesting tidbit: He reportedly couldn't get in during his first night, so he slept on the street and washed at a fire hydrant with a homeless man. See the listing and photos here.
