New York mayor wants Obama's library in his city

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) - New York Mayor Bill de Blasio wants his city to be the home of President Barack Obama's future library.

Obama hasn't decided which city will house his presidential library. Many observers believe the favorite to be Chicago, his hometown.

But New York may have received a lift thanks to a recent Politico story. It reported Obama is considering moving to New York after his term ends in 2016.

Obama received his undergraduate degree at Columbia University, which is making a bid for the library.

De Blasio said Thursday he's supporting the Ivy League university's efforts. The Democrat says Columbia would be "the perfect place" for the library.

He also says he'll let Columbia and Obama's team know the city would support any deal.
