Take a tour of Obama's New York

September 4, 2009 8:06:19 AM PDT
You may know that President Barack Obama spent time in New York City when he was younger. Now, you can see exactly where on a new tour called Obama's New York. Before the White House, before Chicago, there was New York. Obama was in the Big Apple in 1981 to study at Columbia University. Once he graduated, he stayed on for several years. Some say his time in New York was pivotal, that it was there that he started buckling down.

And now, Jeremiah Miller is offering you a chance to follow in the footsteps of the 44th president of the United States. And the starting point is Manhattan.

Wilson isn't a historian. He's an actor who decided to start a walking tour of Obama's time in the city.

It starts on the Upper West Side, alongside a chalk drawing of the president left over from the primary.

Columbia University is on the tour, as is the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. You'll see the places where he ate and where he drank, and the alley where he spent his first night in New York.

It's an amazing story brought to life. And if Jeremiah has his way, he'll offer even more information over time.

Jeremiah gives his tours on Mondays for $25. For more information, visit ObamasNewYork.com.
