    It's a two-bedroom walkup fit for a president.

    President Barack Obama's former pad on the Upper West Side is for rent with an asking price of $1850.

    Obama lived in apartment 3E at 142 West 109th Street in 1981, while a junior at Columbia University.  He shared the tiny pad with a roommate.

    CitiHabitats, which has the listing, isn't shy about letting prospective renters know who the former occupant was.

    "PRESIDENT OBAMA LIVED HERE AND YOU CAN TOO," an ad on the website reads.
