Every year, the city fills up for a major event that is being held at the United Nations Plaza. This is where all 193 members around the globe get together and discuss important matters at an event known as the United Nations General Assembly. This year’s 68th session begins on September 17, 2013. Such discussions and decisions cover peace and security, admission of new members, budgets, etc. This year’s high level meeting will discuss disability and development and on nuclear disarmament. These issues are vital in our society. Even the legendary Stevie Wonder calls for action for the UN Convention on the Rights on Persons with Disabilities to be “signed, sealed and delivered by all countries, for everyone’s sake”.
During this big event, stay @HotelBelleclaire where we conveniently offer government per diem rates. Now, what else is there to do during the UNGA week might you ask? Well, in the world of sports, the New York Islanders are playing against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, September 21st, 2013. Are you a Yankee fan? Try the NY Yankees VIP Baseball Stadium tour and lunch with a Yankees Legend on Friday, September 27 at 2pm.
For all you music lovers out there, a few concerts are rocking out at Barclays Center and the Beacon Theatre. The celebrities that will be ready to pour their hearts out to the crowd are Earth, Wind & Fire, Lionel Ritchie, and one of my favorites, Michael Bublé.
