    I went on a very nice guided tour of the United Nations today. I learned a lot of what the UN's mission is in promoting world peace. Learned a lot of factual information and historical background. In addition, impressive architecture and assembly rooms. Only disappointment is that the general assembly building was not in the tour due to construction.

    What is being attempted in this place is Good with a capital G, but at least while the renovations are going on (until Sep / Oct 2014) all you will see are ugly corridors and maybe one or two ugly council chambers.
    I came to see the General Assembly Hall (closed for renovations) and the stained glass by Marc Chagall (not on the tour).
    None of the places you see in North by Northwest or The Interpreter are on the tour.
    The tour guide was certainly well informed and tried his level best, but bloody hell, what a waste of time! And of course they still...Read More

    This place is a disgrace to mankind. The customer service was horrible, and the food was undivine. That's right. UN-divine. The food was so bad that I went home and ate cat food as a pallet cleanser. For $16 dollars I can go to Mc Donalds and have a tour of my own house instead of the UN building.

    I would not recommend this to a friend.

Wait until October 2014, and then check that Putin isn't invading yet another country; otherwise half the building will be cordoned off again.
