The flags in front of the United Nations building
The United Nations was founded in 1945 after WWII 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."
What New Yorker hasn't cussed when the traffic is worse than normal due to heads of state arriving at the UN on the East River!
Where else in the US other than our city -- the most international in the world -- would the UN be?
