The United Nations Secretariat Building is a 505-foot (154 m) tall skyscraper and the centerpiece of the headquarters of the United Nations, in the Turtle Bay/East Midtown neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City, alongside the East River. Although it remains geopolitically located within the United States, the lot where the building stands is considered to be under United Nations jurisdiction.[3] It is the first skyscraper in New York City to use a glass curtain wall.[4]

The building was designed by the Brazilian architect Oscar Niemeyer and the Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier. One notable feature outside the building is a circular pool with a decorative fountain in its center, which was a gift from the children of the United States, paid for by small donations in schools from all across the country.[5]

The building is connected to the Conference Building (which houses the General Assembly), the Security Council, and the Dag Hammarskjöld Library. It houses the administrative functions of the UN, including day-to-day duties such as finance and translation. As part of the UN complex, the building is subject to an agreement between the United Nations and its host country, the United States.[6]
