This complex of buildings was designed in 1948 by an international committee of architects including Le Corbusier and Oscar Niemeyer. The 39-story Secretariat building was the first international-style skyscraper built in New York. Other important buildings include the sloping General Assembly Hall and the Dag Hammarskjöld Library. The site is an international territory not technically part of New York or the United States.
