During his time attending Columbia in the early ’80s, President Barack Obama lived first on West 109th Street and then on East 94th Street. After graduating, he moved back to Morningside Heights, to a three-bedroom apartment at 622 West 114th Street. This fourth-floor walkup is now listed for sale, asking $1,450,000.



Obama graduated from Columbia in 1983 and then worked at the Business International Corporation and the New York Public Interest Research Group before moving to Chicago in the summer of 1985. The exact dates during which he lived at this apartment are not known, but it was during this two-year period. Also of note: the building, which is known as Revere Hall, was once home to Cecil B. DeMille.

The apartment has been renovated with new plumbing, electrical, and LED lighting. There are large windows throughout and a washer/dryer. The kitchen features high-end appliances, floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, a glass-tiled backsplash, and custom countertops. The master bedroom has a lot of closet space and an en-suite bathroom with double vanity. There’s another full bathroom, as well as two secondary bedrooms, each with generous closets.

The building is located between Broadway and Riverside Drive, closet to Riverside Park and Columbia University. There are 36 units and a live-in super.
