When in New York City, a visit to the United Nations building should be in your list.
For those who don’t believe in the organization, think again. Join the tour and be enlightened.
The facade of the United Nations compound.
The lobby has the World Press Photo exhibits—the Best Photos of 2011. Some photos are charming and wonderful, few bring smiles to your face but most of them are heart-breaking.

The window booths are where the interpreters sit and listen. Remember the movie, THE INTERPRETER by Nicole Kidman? She occupied booth #6!
Know your rights.
The Security Council Hall.
