Before the White House, presidential history, U.S. presidents in NYC, NYC presidential homes

With presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s campaign headquarters in Brooklyn, many have been wondering where the candidate has been living. So far, her team has kept it under wraps, but we do know that she and Bill were renting a $100,000/month Hamptons mansion in August, and that they own a home in Chappaqua, upstate. If she does make it to the White House, she won’t be the first U.S. president to fancy living in the Big Apple. In fact, our nation’s very first president lived in the inaugural presidential mansion on Cherry Street during NYC’s two-year reign as the country’s capital. In honor of Presidents Day, we’ve taken a look at this original New York presidential residence, as well as those that followed.

Where are the presidential homes in NYC?

Live like a president—back when that president was a struggling student in college. The tiny two-bedroom apartment President Barack Obama once shared with another student while at Columbia is now renting for $2,300 a month, a couple hundred bucks less than its previous $2,500 a month listing price.

The quaint home located in a rental building at 142 West 109th Street comes with an old photo of the prez standing in the doorway, and according to the listing, living here could be the road to political greatness: “who knows you might end up at the WHITE HOUSE one day!”
