New York City runs live information centres, with free maps and brochures as well as discount coupons for tourist friendly ‘things-to-do’. If the information is not at hand at the hotel you choose, you can try other sources. Tours of the UN building can be purchased in the foyer of the main UN building. Check the UN Visitors website for more information.
