Visitors can learn about the UN's peacekeeping and humanitarian efforts by touring the complex, even when it is in session. Important notice: Because of the new public access regulations and limitations starting June 2013, please also note that tour...more

This was one of those attractions that I never had time to visit on prior short trips to NYC. This time we were there for eight days and were able to easily schedule the UN tour. It was well-run and I feel like we got...More
The main draw is seeing the General Assembly Hall. We got lucky that there was a live UN meeting in one of the smaller meeting halls and we got a brief walkthrough to observe.
The briefing about the UN was dull. The exhibits were not...More
Hadn’t been on this tour in 50 years, so was looking forward to coming back with the kids. The U.N. is still well worth a visit, as it turns out. I’m fairly up on current affairs and still learned a lot from our friendly and...More
I highly recommend this visit for everyone. The groups are small and the tours are not too long. They show you the most important rooms, usage & history. I could have personally stayed there all day it was so nice.
This was one of the highlights of my trip to New York. I had missed the UN building on previous visits, but decided to visit this time. There is airport style security, so follow the rules on that. Once inside it's a mini version of...More
Didn't know what to expect, but after taking on board advice from fellow travelers to visit the UN, I did. It was well worth it. You realise the power and influence the UN has, to do many great things. The tours, which I recommended, take...More
I found it interesting, but my teenagers were so happy and excited to visit the UN headquarters; they are engaged in debating and MUN and just loved it. We couldn't see a lot of the rooms because it was just before the big assembly. But...More

We booked a Wednesday morning English-language tour. Check-in for ticketholders actually occurs across the street from the main gate, and only one party member needs to go through that process. There is also a security check to gain access to the premises. Following that, you...More
Since I'll be in NYC for 2 weeks, I need to hit the gym a few times while I"m there. Need a weight room with sufficient weights, dumbells, benches, and machines. Can someone point me in the right direction? Prefably one by central park and one by United Nations.

There are fitness centers all over New York City. Did you try Googling?

I was just wondering if anyone has ever stayed here. Is this a nice centrally located hotel? We got it for $99 a night through Hotwire.

It's a very good location near to Grand Central and the UN. You can walk to Times Square, the NY Public Library, Empire State Building, Rockefeller Center, Macy's. And get the subway everywhere else.
Best breakfast place by United Nations?? (1 Replies)
We are staying at the Millennium UN Plaza Hotel (44th btw 1st & 2nd) in a few weeks and are looking for a few good breakfast spots. Was hoping to find at least one with a view of the river. Also was hoping to find a reasonably priced place with good food. Thanks in advance
