Please note that the colours can look a bit different from the original postcard, and from one computer screen to the other.

Very nice 1960s or 1970s postcard showing a view of the United Nations headquarters in New York City. 
The exact date of this card is unknown but we can see parked in front of the building some cars that look end 60s or 1970s.
The card can't be older than 1963 as 5 digit American zip codes were invented that year, and the reverse side shows the publisher's zip code with their address.
It looks like "Nester's Map and Guide Corp.", the publisher, doesn't exist anymore, as when you type the address in Google, it refers you to a rental building.

This unused card is in very good condition, with minor wear on the corners, especially the top left and the bottom right ones. 

Dimensions: 13.8 cm  x  8.8 cm



The United Nations headquarters were built in 1952 near 1st Avenue. I was lucky enough to visit the building in the 80s and I have an excellent souvenir of this visit.
By the way, do you remember that Alfred Hitchcock used the UN headquarters in his film "North by Northwest"?



What a beautiful architecture and design!
