This twin-towered, 38-story apartment and office complex consisting of 860 and 870 United  Nations Plaza on 49th Street commands outstanding views of the United Nations to the south, Midtown to the west and the East River to the east. 

The full-block project has its own block-long driveway that makes for an impressive entrance. It was designed by Harrison, Abramovitz & Harris and erected in 1966. 

The six-story base of the large development contains about 300,000 square feet of office space and the cooperative apartments share an expansive, corporate-style lobby overlooking an enclosed garden court. 

The two towers contain a total of 334 apartments, of which 56 are duplexes on the top eight floors.
