20 United Nations Headquarters Building in New York City, New York

Although the headquarters for the United Nations are located in Manhattan, this 509 foot tower and the other buildings in the complex are considered to be international territory. John D. Rockefeller Jr., the son of the founder of Standard Oil, donated the land so it could be built in 1952. On Monday through Friday, the 193 poles in front of the U.N. display the flags of each member country in alphabetical order.
