Each year world leaders and representatives converge at the United Nation Headquarters for four months of intense sessions. From September to December the Assembly meets with goals of using open communication to resolve political and humanitarian concerns. The General Assembly has been the setting of many memorable speeches by world leaders.
UN Headquarters is situated on international territory on the east side of Manhattan, where it’s been located since 1952.
