United Nations Headquarters New York

This international zone in the heart of the city was built on land donated by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. It is dominated by the 544-foot slab building housing the Secretariat, flanked by the General Assembly Building to its north, the Conference Building on the east, and the Library at the 42nd Street end. The complex extends out onto a platform over the FDR Drive, and a tunnel diverts First Avenue traffic away from it.
