United Nations NYC

To spend my week end time in better way , I visited the United Nations Head quarters in Manhattan , New York City  on 22-Dec-2013. I missed the General Assembly hall due its renovation process . Its better to do the reservation of your visiting to UNO, in weekdays you can get the guided tour (Fee - 18$) .  

The United Nations is an international organization founded in 1945 after the Second World War by 51 countries committed to maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations and promoting social progress, better living standards and human rights.

Initially it was started with 51 members now it has 193 members. India joined in UN on 30-Oct-1945.

The UN has 4 main purposes

  • To keep peace throughout the world;
  • To develop friendly relations among nations;
  • To help nations work together to improve the lives of poor people, to conquer hunger, disease and illiteracy, and to encourage respect for each other’s rights and freedoms;
  • To be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations to achieve these goals.
