New York City's First Avenue is a one-way street that runs north-south and ends at Willis Avenue Bridge. It passes through many residential neighborhoods and borders the United Nations complex between 42nd and 45th Streets, a popular area to discover.

The United Nations Headquarters sits on 18-acres of international territory in the heart of New York City.  One hour guided tours give the opportunity to see what happens behind the scenes of this busy organization. Tickets can be purchased online, in advance to avoid disappointment. For security reasons, each visitor must obtain a security pass and children under five are not permitted.

While in the area, explore the other offerings of this part of Manhattan. Start off with a peaceful stroll through Ralph Bunche Park across the street.
