Expert review of The UN Headquarters
This iconic curtain of blue glass, developed by an international team of architects including Niemeyer and Corbusier, has towered over the East River on a plot of land donated by John D. Rockefeller since 1950. Ever since it has stood as a symbol of peace and international cooperation as the meeting place of the oft contentious UN General Assembly. The guided tours are fascinating and since the UN Headquarters is legally not a part of the US, it’s also the easiest and cheapest international trip you’ll ever make.
Tickets are US$16 for adults and US$9 for children between 5-12. Children under five are not permitted on the tours.
