Biden and The UN Are in Town Making New Yorkers Stressed Out

Biden and The UN Are in Town Making New Yorkers Stressed Out

The traffic into New York was a mess from New Jersey. Hour long waits and traffic jams boggled the drivers minds. The reason for the delays…..are the road closures set for UN General Assembly, which started Sunday Night. The 76th session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) is about to kick off on Tuesday and the preparations are enough to dive a sane person crazy.

Tomorrow expect a gridlock of diplomatic motorcades until next Tuesday, as world leaders and their entourages descend. The UN hosts 132 countries and of course the already listed 37 protests planned. Hundreds of law enforcement officers are being deployed to the streets surrounding U.N. Their numbers will multiply over the weekend and into early next week, and so will street closures. And who pays the price? The people who live and work in Manhattan.

President Biden, comes off his vacation to deliver his remarks in-person. He is expected to appear with a smaller-than-usual White House entourage on Monday.

More than 100 presidents, prime ministers and other leaders are expected to give in-person speeches.

Over at the UN, 42nd St. between First and Second Aves. will be completely closed off to traffic.

Here’s what we know:

  • FDR Drive between Whitehall and 42nd streets
  • Area bounded by 60th Street on the north, 34th Street on the south, First Avenue on the east and Third Avenue on the west

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, who is about to embark on a second five-year term, stated “The war on our planet must end.”

Representatives from Afghanistan will not be attending.

If you are going to the opening nights of either Come From Away or Moulin Rouge! you need to give yourself extra time to get to your seats.

For the rest of us breathe, this to shall pass.
