The United Nations Headquarters is a distinctive complex in New York City, east side of Midtown Manhattan that has served as the headquarters of the United Nations since its completion in 1950. It was an international committee of architects like Oscar Niemeyer, Le Corbusier and Wallace K. Harrison which designed this building. The international style was chosen by the architectures as a symbol for a new start after the Second World War. The UN Headquarters is located in the Turtle Bay neighbourhood with the borders at First Avenue west, East 42nd Street south, East 48th Street north and the East River. This area is because of the occupation by the United Nations international territory.
