Construction in NYC

An image of the United Nations building in New York under construction in 1949. The building was completed in 1952.

The Empire State Building is in the background.

Bizarrely, this image is often said to be the Empire State Building under construction, even though it was completed in 1931, and is clearly visible in the background!
