United Nations Headquarters

One of New York's most iconic buildings, the United Nations' official headquarters takes up several blocks of real estate by the East River in Midtown Manhattan. The complex is made up of several buildings, including the domed General Assembly Hall, visitors center and the very 1950s, high-rise Secretariat building. Landscaped gardens decorated with outdoor sculptures surround the complex and flapping flags fly in the breeze.

The best way to get a feel for the international goings on is to take a guided tour. Running throughout the day, the 45-minute tours provide valuable insights into human rights history, the UN and its missions, and the UN complex.

Practical Info

The United Nations Headquarters is on First Avenue, between 42nd and 48th Streets on the East River. The visitors entrance is on First Avenue at 46th Street. To get here by subway, take the train to Grand Central then stroll along E 42nd Street to First Avenue.
