Touring the United Nations headquarters in New York is the best possible way to step back into the art and architecture that have shaped the world of diplomacy from the organization’s earliest days to the present. If you plan to visit soon, though, plan ahead. With renovations underway in the General Assembly building, new procedures effective July 1, 2013, require making tour reservations online in advance. The entrance to the grounds also has been moved for the rest of this summer. For more information, click here.
