(Newser) – Barack Obama slept there, and you can, too—for a mere $1900 a month, you can rent the president's old New York City apartment, Gawker reports. The apartment at 42 West 109th St. has "beautiful hardwood floors," "high ceilings," and "large closets," the ad says. Obama lived there with a roommate during his junior year at Columbia in 1981.
