This otherwise not very interesting looking walk-up at 142 West 109th Street was once inhabited by Barack Obama. He shared it with a roommate in 1981, when he was a student at Columbia, according to the Times. The 1BR with windowless office (described in the listing as a 2BR where "President Omaba" once lived) is now on the rental market for $1,900/month. The apartment's presidential connection is "a dinner conversation," the broker tells the Times?if you can fit a dinner table.
