United Nations Headquarters in New York City
The U.N. Charter was approved by the required number of nations in 1945. At that time, the organization lacked a permanent headquarters. Delegates agreed the headquarters should be in the United States. On December 14, 1946, the U.N. General Assembly accepted a donation of $8.5 million from John D. Rockefeller, Jr., to buy 18 acres of land along the East River in New York City. The next year, the U.S. Congress approved an interest-free loan of $65 million to construct the headquarters buildings. The buildings were completed in the fall of 1952. The most prominent of these is the tall Secretariat Building, which is a well-known symbol of the United Nations.
