Apartment 3E at 142 West 109th St. is like the opposite of haunted: Barack Obama lived here in 1981. Now it's on the market, and you can rent it for $1,900 a month. Let's take a look.

The ad for the pre-war Upper West Side apartment boasts "beautiful hardwood floors," "high ceilings," "large closets" and "OBAMA SLEPT HERE AND YOU CAN TOO." The New York Times says Obama lived here with a roommate in 1981 during his Junior year at Columbia. But what will you get for your $1,900, besides the exciting possibility that some of Obama's dandruff is still floating around in the living room?

Here is the front of the building. All in all, not a bad deal. (But "Upper West Side?" Really more of a Morningside Heights address. Realtors!)
