The Upper West Side third-floor walk-up where President Obama lived while attending Columbia University recently became available to rent. It's listed at $2,400 a month, which is a significant increase from the $360 President Obama paid with his roommate in the early 1980s.

According to the listing, the apartment is a third-floor walk-up with exposed brick, large windows, and charming details. "Live Like the President!!!" the online posting for the apartment reads. "Barack Obama's former apartment is now on the market for rent. Be a part of history and live where the President lived while he attended Columbia University. Who knows, you just might end up in the White House one day."
