There have been 4 U.S. Presidents who have lived in the City over the past 226 years since our first took office, and our friends at 6sqft recently wrote a great historical article detailing their NYC residences.

There’s been a lot of talk lately about President Obama moving his family to New York City when he finishes his second term in office, a relocation that seems quite plausible since college-bound Malia has already toured Columbia, NYU, and Barnard and since the President himself attended Columbia and had a few apartments around the city. But Obama is not 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 capitol. We’ve taken a look at this original New York presidential residence, as well as those that followed.

Check out the full article for detailed historical coverage of all 4 presidential residences in the City.
