Photographer's Note

The United Nations is headquartered in New York City in a complex designed by a board of architects led by Wallace Harrison and built by the architectural firm Harrison & Abramovitz. The complex has served as the official headquarters of the United Nations since its completion in 1951. It is in the Turtle Bay neighborhood of Manhattan, on 17 to 18 acres (6.9 to 7.3 ha) of grounds overlooking the East River. Its borders are;) First Avenue on the west, East 42nd Street to the south, East 48th Street on the north, and the East River to the east.

Although it is in New York City, the land occupied by the United Nations Headquarters and the spaces of buildings that it rents are under the sole administration of the United Nations and not the U.S. government. They are technically extraterritorial through a treaty agreement with the U.S. government. However, in exchange for local police, fire protection, and other services, the United Nations agrees to acknowledge most local, state, and federal laws.

In the same picture you still can see the top of Empire State Building (center background), The Top of Chrisler building (right side), The Millennium Hilton New York One UN Plaza (that I showed here in previewsly photo, see link bellow).
