I do recommend the visit if you like to listen about world history. If you are a luckier person, maybe you can cross your path with a celebrity in UN halls. I liked the tour but once is enough.

We visited with our 11 year old and really enjoyed it. The tour takes you through all the major assemblies as well as you get to enjoy the various art gifts the member states have donated.

the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building,
iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal
