United Nations: New York City

The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental organization to promote international co-operation. As of this writing, there are 193 member states. The headquarters of the United Nations is in Manhattan, New York City.  Further main offices are situated in Geneva, Nairobi, and Vienna. The United Nations organization has it’s own postal agency: The United Nations Postal Administration.
