United Nations, New York City: 88 reviews and 143 photos
One should not miss this global tour-de-force of an organization when visiting New York. The UN complex is expansive and if you're in a rush, you can just take a photo of the main building outside.
I remembered my visits to the UN really well. On one visit, I lingered around and saw a small protest outside of older Korean men who served in the Vietnam War through the Korean government. I had spoken with some of them and had heard about the horrors of war, the demand for a more peaceful world, and justice for allies (i.e., the global cadre of military/technical support personnel of the US-backed incursion of Vietnam). There appeared to be many problems and I could only empathize with their concerns. Another visit had taken me to another UN building for a global discussion of women's issues. That was an interesting visit that allowed me to learn some of the problems.
Enjoy your visit to the UN and learn a lot from it!
