    Oh, me bad. I thought the one in this thread is the one proposed. I retract my earlier statement (but still have concerns.)

    The proposed building does not complement the Secretariat building at all. I think it should go back to the drawing board it destroys the beauty of the UN architecture.

    UN is considered international territory. With the train stations below FT, the UN could not be situated there.
  4. Yikes! That is bad.

    Yikes! That is bad.

    It isn't faesible for the U.N. to move to the WTC. The U.N. is considered International / Foreign Territory and that won't work at the WTC and atop a major transit hub. Not gonna happen.

    Yeah - I'm just turning it into a mantra.

    Perhaps all of this with the WTC uprising plays out to a move by the UN to WTC site.

    I don't think Brooklyn needs the U.N. right now. It will scare away potential tenants with its burdensome secutiry needs and diplomats who, generally, disregard courtesy toward city residents. ...

    I used to live on East 46th Street and I can tell you it is maddening when the General Assembly is in session. It ties up everything. With that said, despite W's continual attacks on the UN, I...
