NEW YORK - (AP) - The childhood home in New York City of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is set to be auctioned and the opening bid is $849,000.

Newsday reports  the Queens home, which is listed on Trump's birth certificate, will be auctioned on Oct. 19 at the Roosevelt Hotel in Manhattan.

The 3,600-square-foot Tudor has five bedrooms, a fully furnished basement and a two-car garage. It had been listed in July for $1.65 million.
