During my internship last year with our IBVM NGO at the UN, the gardens at the UN headquarters were closed to the public due to maintenance and landscaping. I was delighted to discover that they are open now. What a fantastic place to sit and contemplate the day’s discussions and actually enjoy some silence (or relative silence) amid the usual commotion.
Here are a selection of photos from the gardens, including some of the statues and works of art that have been given to the UN by various Member States.
The rose garden was pretty much past its prime but I couldn’t resist taking a few photos!
