UN ComplexUN HQ along First Ave to undergo a seven-year $1 billion facelift.

The keywords on the agenda for the 66th session of the UN General Assembly are renewal and revitalization. Technically situated on “international Territory” the United Nations Headquarters in Turtle Bay was open for business in 1952. The 193 member states in attendance for the two-week September session help fill $16000 a night suites and eat $3000 meals — that has to be good for the local economy.
