The UN will hold its 73rd session of the General Assembly in New York City from Sunday, September 23, through Friday, October 5. Heads of state and other world leaders will participate in various meetings during the session. Heightened security measures, including road closures, will be in place around the UN building. Police officials have warned that there will be significant traffic disruptions in the area, including on First Avenue, in the coming days. Additionally, several groups have planned protests throughout the week in the vicinity of UN buildings.
The annual opening session of the UN General Assembly brings hundreds of foreign leaders and diplomats to New York every September, along with increased security and transportation disruptions.
Individuals in New York City during the General Assembly are advised to obey all instructions issued by the local authorities, allow additional time to travel, and avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution.
