    Hopefully Bruno and Silver do something right and not hand over the bank open check to the UN for this renovation which can come in much much much less then they estimate

    If they moved to FT they might as well put a giant target on the building.

    I don't think terrorists would dare strike the UN, or any building the UN moved to. As it stands now, they are against the west, and these western countries are the ones most vehemently after them. A strike on the UN would essentially be a symbol that they are against the entire civilized world, and in turn, the rest of the world would also no longer stay on the sidelines.

    If the terrorist wanted to attack the UN in the first place, they would have flown a plane in 2001 directly to their current UN building. But they didn't. Maybe they will now.

    That's what spooked so many people that were considering moving into Trump World Tower.

    UN is considered international territory. With the train stations below FT, the UN could not be situated there.

    They are moving ahead with a major renovation next year, they are not, (sadly) going anywhere

    Not to mention the everyday hassles of regular office workers trying to get into the building. The UN needs its own tower and designated territory. Keep the WTC open as it is.
