See The Details On The Swanky $10M NYC Apartment The Obamas Are Eyeing

Adios, D.C.!

Published October 3, 2017

History tells us that our nation's capital, Washington, D.C., was once a humid marshland where hippos may or may not have roamed free, lending itself to the "swamp" descriptor that is so often employed today to allude to the city's proclivity for shady politics. 

Though Donald Trump has made empty promises to "drain" the aforementioned swamp, and the changing seasons have ushered in a decidedly less humid climate, so long as the swamp monster himself is perched at that "real dump" more commonly known as The White House, #SwampSZN is still in full gear.

As a result, the Obamas, smart cookies that they are, wisely want to get out. And so they've set their sights on the Big Apple.

Page Six reported that multiple sources confirmed Barack and Michelle Obama are interested in an apartment at 10 Gracie Square on the Upper East Side, not too far from the mayor's residence at Gracie Mansion.

With a steep $10 million price tag, you already know this apartment building is decked out with amenities. They include tight security, an indoor gym, a stealthy underground parking garage, five bedrooms, four baths, a library with a wood-burning fireplace and views of the East River. Oh, and there's also a basketball court — perfect for when athletes go to visit #OurPresident, as Barry was known to love playing ball with guests during his White House tenure.

And although they purchased an $8.1 million house in the tony Kalorama neighborhood of D.C. earlier this year, it seems as though America's mom and dad aren't too keen on staying there. Maybe this is because Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump moved to the hood shortly after the Obamas settled in. Or maybe it's just because D.C. doesn't have a decent bagel. Who knows.

In this odd year that is 2017 A.D., Donald Trump lives in the White House and Barack and Michelle Obama are about to move to NYC. 

Life comes at you fast, folks!
