United Nations Plaza
East 46th St. at First Ave. Built atop ground once occupied by slaughterhouses, the United Nations Plaza is international territory. Though San Francisco, Boston, and Philadelphia were all contenders when the site was planned back in 1944, its first Secretary General, Trygve Lie, preferred New York. The U.N. has it's own fire department, police force, and postal service; the city provides protection for diplomats. Tours leave every half hour, 9:15 am to 4:45 pm.
