Church Center for the United Nations, Turtle Bay, NYC

Across from the United Nations at 777 First Avenue is the Church Center, originally called the Church Peace Center. The most eye-catching part of the building is its unique first floor sculpture design by Benoit Gilsoul, which is actually the facade of Tillman Chapel.  The building dates from 1962-63 and was designed by William Lescaze, who has been covered a few times on this blog. It is owned by the United Methodist Church.
