For rent: New York apartment where Obama lived in 1980s

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 website listing states: "Live Like the President!!!." But a Citi Habitats broker listing the apartment this week told the Wall Street Journal that the flat was "a typical New York City walk-up." 

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.
