Malia Obama's summer in NYC

President Obama lived in New York for four years in the 1980s while he attended Columbia University and during his first job before law school. Although he lived in a then-gritty building on East 94th St., his 17-year-old daughter is having a far different experience as she lives and reportedly interns in NYC.

Malia, who reportedly wants to become a filmmaker, has toured NYC colleges, so this summer could just be a dry run for her. Here's a breakdown of some of the ultra-cool places she's been spotted this summer.

Everyone in NYC knows that when your parents visit from out of town, you go see a Broadway play or musical.
