The United Nations


The United Nations. First established after WWII, it’s a place where all nations come together to peacefully discuss matters related to peace and prevention of war.
유엔. 제2차 세계 대전 이후로 설립되어 각국 대사들이 모여 평화와 전쟁 방지를 의논 할 수 있는  곳입니다.


There’s always a huge line of tourists waiting to go inside. Most tourists come in groups from schools or tour groups. There are multiple entrances into the UN. This particular one is mainly for tourists.
유엔은 항상 관광객들이 많습니다. 대부분 학교나 여행사에서 방문하기 때문에 줄이 엄청 길어요. 이 사진은 유엔으로 들어가는 관광 전용 정문입니다.

This is the first thing you will see after passing the security checkpoint. This is where the famous Knotted Gun sculpture is at. The sculpture symbolizes cessation of war.
들어가시면 첫 번째로 보이는 곳입니다. 전쟁 종식을 상징하는 이 묶여 있는 총이 유엔에서 제일 유명안 조형물입니다.

There’s meetings after meetings…after meetings in the UN. There are many meeting rooms in different sizes. But you need a pass to get into these rooms.
유엔은 미팅을 아주 많이합니다. 미팅 사이즈도 다양합니다 하니만 들어갈려면 패스가 필요합니다.

This is my favorite place in the UN. It’s called the East Lounge. It’s especially busy during lunch hours. You can see people taking naps in between meetings here.
제가 제일 좋아하는 라운지입니다. 낮잠자기 딱! 좋은 곳이에요 특히 점심시간이나 미팅 끝나고 와서 잠깐 자고가는 사람이 많아요.


Outside of the UN, there is this place that’s really good. It’s called “Dag’s Patio Cafe” and located across the street in the Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza. The burgers here are so good! Must definitely try.
유엔 건너편 Dag Hammarskjöld Plaza에 작은 햄버거 파는 곳이 있어요. 전 여기 추천해요! 진짜 맛있어요!

IMG_8038Jessica has been talking about this place for months. She said the chicken sandwich was the best she ever had. So of course I had to go and try it out.

This is the original chicken sandwich ($8). It doesn’t look like much but it was so, so good! The chicken was so soft and perfectly fried with pickles and mayo. Ours was fresh so it was hot. I wished the bun was a bit toasted but, nevertheless, delicious. (You can also see Jessica taking pictures in the background)

Right next to Delaney there’s La Palapa. They mainly sell tacos and quesadillas. But! We wanted to get the horchata.

The horchata ($4) was really good and refreshing. We’ve tried a lot of horchatas and this one was pretty good.

Across Delaney, theres the Red Hook Lobster Pound. They sell lobster rolls! Unfortunately, we wanted the Connecticut Lobster Roll but we had to wait 10 minutes for the butter to melt.

This is the Maine Lobster Roll ($25). I was surprised with the quality. I’m pretty sensitive to seafood but this lobster was pretty fresh and cooked well. As we were eating it, it was hard to keep the lobster pieces in the bun. It was a bit of a mess. I felt like that bun was a bit dry and boring.
