Where Will Obama Move in 2017? NYC is a Strong Contender
According to a report, President Obama is thinking of moving to New York after his second term. Let's jump the gun and do some early house-hunting.Politico reported that New York City is high on President Obama's list of places to move after his presidency. It makes sense, given that Obama did live in Morningside Heights and Park Slope during and after his time at Columbia University. "What he cherishes and misses is the serendipity — you don't know who you're going to bump into or what they're going to say," Valerie Jarrett, Obama's senior adviser, told Politico. "He hungers for that." His home state of Hawaii is also a contender, as is Chicago, but according to friend and former NBA star Alonzo Mourning, "the one thing that stood out more than anything else was New York."
If Obama did decide to move his family to New York City, what kind of house would suit him best? We know that, before moving to the White House, he lived in a six-bedroom, six-bath, 6,400-square-foot mansion in Chicago. With that in mind, we scoped out some New York homes that seem fit for a former U.S. president.
