People sure know how to dig up info. Not that this entirely stops anyone from doing it in this day-and-age, but when one stumbles upon little facts and photographs of this greatness, they instantly become historical, yet important information us Americans should gravitate to. Yeah, we all have our problems to face on the regular day-to-day basis, which is understandable, but considering I’m pro-Obama, I get a kick out of stuff when it surfaces. Here’s an in-depth look at where President Obama once called home, his New York City digs while he was a student at Columbia University. More flicks and a accompanying video via AOL can be viewed after the jump.
And a big “OH” at that price for rent…times sure have dramatically changed!:
Once upon a time, Barack Obama was a normal college student attending Columbia University in NYC, living on the Upper West Side, and paying $360 a month for a tiny room. That time was 1981, and in 2012, the apartment’s rent is $2,400 a month. Like many imperfect Manhattan walk-ups, it has a galley kitchen, a 7×9-foot bedroom, a buzzer that doesn’t work, and five locks on the door. Luckily, Obama can call the enormous White House his home now.
