New York, NewYork, USA

My sight-seeing today centred around a visit to the grounds of the United Nations building. I didn't have time for the inside tour.

The building itself and various sculptures in the grounds.

The inscription reads: Gift of Union of Soviet Socialist Republics to the United Nations 1959

Another, rather more striking gift from the Soviet Government to the United Nations. St George defeats the Dragon of Nuclear War. This sculpture includes casings from actual US (Pershing) and Soviet (SS-20) missiles.

Good Defeats Evil, Zurae Tsereteli, 1990. (The artist, I assume.)

Various details, and an indifferent squirrel.
