Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama lived in Brooklyn Heights as previously reported. Obama told the Brooklyn Paper:
“I don’t remember the exact address,” he added, referring to his Park Slope home, where he is believed to have lived for about a year-and-a-half. “Then, I subletted for about three months in Brooklyn Heights, near the Promenade. On Sunday mornings, there was a bagel shop near the subway station, and I would go there and pick up a coffee and New York Times.”
So, did you live near Obama during his magical three months here in Brooklyn Heights? Where will the “Barack Slept Here” plaque pop up right after Inauguration Day?
