New York Police Evacuate Streets Near UN Building During Standoff

Police officers engaged in a standoff with a man outside the United Nations headquarters in Manhattan on the morning of Thursday, December 2.

The New York City Police Department (NYPD) instructed people to avoid the immediate area of 42nd Street and 1st Avenue, where a main entrance to the UN used by staff and diplomats is located.

This footage, taken from a nearby hotel, shows a heavy police presence along 1st Avenue, which is seen blocked off close to the entrance to the UN. Credit: Bob Rojahn via Storyful
